I did a whole series of photos with this glass chess set, playing with lighting, shadows, and refraction all on the macro scale. It was quite fun, and here is my favorite shot.

Just rotated photo 90 degrees clock-wise and resized.

My very first challenge photo ever. Seems ages ago, and I can pick out about 50 things I should have done differently.

not bad at all ...
The reflection cpuld be more in focus.
I like the way the Image was composed, fitting the title.

I like the way the checker board reflects on the pawn, good glass definition.

the theme was great, i just wanted to see a little bit more of the king becuase i think it was drowning in blurriness (if there is such word) ..you know what i mean! (^o^)

This -- a l m o s t -- works for me. Wish the king were more obvious. Gave it a "6" nonetheless.

The reflection in the top of the pawn is good, but the photo has no blacks or whites which suggests you need to increase the contrast a bit in post processing. Also, use USM to make it sharper as its all a bit soft at the moment.

I really like the composition and the reflections you were able to get in the top of the pawn - great job!

This was a great idea but too much of the photo is out of focus. Perhaps if you had made the sharper focused one a larger part - the main part and had the out of focus one to be behind and smaller. . . . .

An interesting twist on the drop-of-water-as-lens cliche. Unfortunately not quite sharp.

I've begun to wonder if the twin chess photogs are actually playing a real game through this forum with each of their challenges... ah well. Tho some may be tired of the subject, I am enjoying the extended study of Opaque vs Transparent and their varied interpretations.
