"Life is just a game,... and you are defeated!"

---------------------------------------- --------------

I'm not really sure about this shot, but I give it a try. If you have any feedback, just let me know. Maybe I can retry this shot later.

Thank you for your time :).

-----------------

Edited the border. I'm not sure. Should I use a black or a white border?.

[sorry if this is a double post]

- I've noticed that your modern art shots are absolutly amazing but when you take more... "old-fashion" type pictures they don't quite seem to have the same effect, your talent most definetly rides with your modern art, I love this one and the cococola picture, they absolutly amazing - I look forward to seeing more of your pictures, take care.

Delicious. :heart: The contrast is perfect, and the pure white gives the piece a wonderful, sort of empty feeling. I love that you can see the cracks on the fallen piece but none on the one still standing.

I'm a bit of a chess-a-holic so this really grabbed my attention. I have been trying the same sort of thing myself. I haven't posted any of them yet. I love the composition. Thanks for sharing. :-)

I think the category should be expressive rather than macro. Magnificent shot. Makes us realize that in the world we live in today there have to be both winners and losers.

The lighting is purely fantastic.

White border definitely works. Very nice idea here, mayve you could try experiment by cropping and framing the objects a lil closer, maybe crop half of the black king or something, i dunno a closer shot, showing the samre thing, but not showing everything, might be interesting no? Anyways, i like this shot, nice lighting, goes into my fav as well. :+fav:
