This is a really old deck of cards from Europe (Switzerland). I guess the "Queen" cards back then were "D" for Dame. Thought it's interesting because of the unique names on each card.

Very little processing, just Auto-Contrast, Auto-Levels, Curves, Crop, Resize, USM (.5 pixel). I also removed the "D" and the heart and diamond symbol from each of the red cards over just one name so you can them better. The black Clubs card was left alone.

These cards are only 2 inches by 1 1/4 inches in size.

Very nice concept. Composition is right on. The background is not quite black; you may want to experiment with making it more solid. Nice work.

Interesting card deck. The lighting might be a little more dramatic but overall very nice!

the bright white kind of washes out the details on that center card. softer lighting, maybe? good idea for a submission :)

Nice composition. The speckles in the background are a little distracting. Try darkening the background to solid hearse black.
