Go is described by some as being the greatest strategy board game in history and one of the closest approximations of actual warfare one can get in a board game.

Hi from the C Club!!!

This looks very complicated! Can you play this game??? Would love to know the details of the game

First impressions, it looks like a bunch of candies on a board, then I look more closely and see that the whites are actually larger than the blacks. Or it is an optical illusion.

The focus is off everywhere to be honest, the left hand side is sharp, the back front 1/4 right is sharp. I am looking for somewhere for my eye to rest. Your DOF is everywhere too. If you look at your shot, you will see that your DOF seems to go in the sharpest areas.

There seems to be no rhythm or reason to your game pieces, which could be how the game is played, but for a photo needs to have something to point at and say "Ha" there it is.

Your image, even though it has several DOFs still seems to be a tad flat. Try different angles, like just one game piece and the rest behind them etc

I am not sure there is a lot you could have done in post processing, bar sharpen.

Please PM me if you have any questions or ideas you want to talk about

IMO your focus should have been in the front and center ... very sharp there then fading to the background
