Taking a picture of another's art is akin to stealing in my book.

Sound familar ? Is this any different than my statue photo ? I think not :)

The 'mysterious' white bar was some kind of Photoshop 'gift'. I have no idea how it got there or why i didn't see it. The lighting was not as good as i had hoped for, but the best i was ablt to achieve. I am still learning! The spot light was sipposed to be equallyon the two pawns, but black is a tough color to light, especially so next to white. Thanks to all those that commented.

Interesting shot, beautiful light effect.

The very first thing I see in this shot is the mysterious white bar across the top of the shot. Is this intentional (if so I have no idea what it means) or did you crop to far? The center pawn is overexposed. Your composition is good, but I think a reshoot would be a good exercise!

Nice use of lighting!

Clever idea.

Why leave the white strip at the top? Also, I might have put the spotlight on the two pawns.

love the idea of the spotlight, but the composition seems a litte poor, sorry! I think it comes from the lighting as a whole, it's a bit weak. 4.

Clever lighting. Don't like the white stripe across the top .... intentional???

nice sense of drama
02/26/2004 09:27:16 PM
Good concept, but I think the blue background takes away from the drama of the shot. Also white speckles are distracting. Go for black and white or sepia for this one.

nice lighting.....high-lighting the Good one....

This was a great idea, but too much blue, a creative cropping of this photo would have been nicer to keep my attention, I can't get pasted the blue.

Very cool shot!
02/25/2004 08:44:49 PM
I think that shooting this from above would have made it work better.
02/25/2004 06:40:47 PM
the lighting makes this piece work
02/25/2004 02:08:00 PM
nice lighting
02/25/2004 10:42:09 AM
Great colors and lighting. Good idea.

A very good expression of humanity' most ancient conflict is a domesticated form.Experts would say there is too much light given on the white chess -figures in the middle and they would be right.The idea is very good, worth of a few more experiments.
