Greetings from the Critique Club...

I was not able to vote on this challenge, but if I had, I probably would have given you a 5 or 6.

My first impression is that I like the colours and contrast as they are very strong. The composition feels a little busy. The three most important pieces are the two in the foreground, and clear piece in the middleground. The pieces in the background are a little distracting. Perhaps if they were smaller pieces such as rooks, they would not grab our attention so much. I think the angle of the board has room for improvement as well. Rotating the board even more might give this shot a little more drama. Overall it is an interesting shot, it just needs some more thought to take it to the next level.

If you need any clarification on any of my comments, please feel free to pm me. It might take some time for me to get back to you.

The bokeh at the background could be better and have more light. The horse looks OOF but your idea is great, just need more tweaking.
