I had a lot of difficulty with this shot and took a lot of shots. My dice melted, lighter fluid dripped on one of my umbrellas and it caught on fire, they burn REALLY quick. I burned my fingers several times. I originally had a red background in this and it just wasn't working. I tried multiple backgrounds still couldn't get the shot I wanted. I abandoned this idea and did some shots of chessmen, but I kept coming back to this one shot. The colors were working but I liked the rest of it. I had the bright idea to use selective color which solved my problem with the photo. It's still not what I envisioned but I'm running out of time.

I like the action of the hand "throwing" the die.


I wasn't aware of that image. I like the flames on it better.

Creative indeed.

Nice use of selective desaturation, and great title. The flame edges look a little odd to me though...

the selectibve desaturation doesn't work here, the dice and flames look cut out

Clever!

Probably a better shot, based on the challenge just being games, would be to have left the flames off since they take away from the desaturated look.

Nice concept but I think the left side of the bottom dice/flame looks a lil to EDITED. need to be softened I think to match the softness of the upper area.
