Wandering around Central Park I saw this area that intrigued me. However, I had a hard time capturing the essence of what I thought was so cool about it. I thought this photo came out ok but I think it may lack context. I wish there was someone playing chess, or, at the very least, some pieces (I left mine in my other pants). just wondering what everyone else thought.

This is a beautiful shot.. Really, colors, perspective, fantastic job.. My only slight criticism would be that I would've liked a little bit larger DOF to get the entire board in focus, and tone down the boards in the background, but as is I think it's amazing. I'd be very proud of this one!

Very nice indeed, I like the composition and lighting. That's a wall hanger.

Ryan, the lighting is great, and the colours too... you've captured the grain beautifully. What equipment were you using for this shot?

thanks for the feedback. I liked the way this shot turned out, but, didn't really expect anyone else to like it for some reason. I've gone back and cloned out some of the random colors that appear in the background and toned down the other boards.

I use a canon XTi with a Tamron 17-50. PP was done with CS3.

Thanks again,

ryan
