    So I have never posted my work online and now I hope by doing so I can get some input on it. Most of the time the people I know just say "pretty picture" or something of the like.

    http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2469/4028352104_2e422e8f08_b.jpg

    So I hope that I can gain some insight on this photo. All I was doing was experimenting with the light and I popped my kit lens on it to get a wide shot at 18mm.
    All input is welcome! thanks

    by the way I am having trouble linking the photo.

    great contrast, I love that the depth of field is completely in the middle of the board bringing you to the kings. Interesting angle/view on something that would normally be boring.

    I like it too, I think a little brighter spotlight, on the dark side pieces would really bring this picture to life. Or readjust it to knock back the shadow on those darker pieces.

    thanks, I am used to a old forum that I visited that pasting the HTML code was alright

    What a creative composition! The size is a bit odd, but I like it overall as it adds to the feel of the piece. And the light in the photo is marvelous, casting an ominous feel over the whole thing. I loved it :)
