Is this a Lensbaby image? Whatever it is, I like it. Very creative to blur the assailants!

Nice DOF but maybe a bit too soft overall :)

something to focus on would help a little more, a little sharper on the King, nice job though i do like it

cool image! I tried many shots with Chess boards and pieces, this is really nice use of focus.

nice overall...just lacks the punch needed for a best of 2008 challenge...I like the softness

simple but nice, the soft tones and blur works well.
