Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: Nice depth of field use and great focus on the main portion of the image. I think a touch of neat image or noise ninja would have helped out a great deal.

Lighting: Excellent, moody lighting that really adds to the sense of failure that you nicely portrayed. I think that it is just a little too dark, which also magnifies some of the noise.

Composition/Content: Your composition in addition to your lighting provide several leading elements that pull the viewer all around the frame. From the foreground pieces to the small highlights on the background pieces, all elements flow very nicely together.

My Opinion: I think this one should have done a bit better, but the voters need vibrancy or a portrait from a third world country to give high scores. I like the idea, and I think that it was the most well-executed of those with similar ideas.

Nice image and I like the concept and composition. This may have worked better with some lighting coming from a 45 degree angle rather than the nearly 90 degrees it appears to be. This would give at least some detail to the chess piece in the right foreground.

Great idea for the challenge. I would have preferred to see a little more color.

The dark shades pull the failure idea together.

Just a bit too dark and noisy. A little neat image would have improved upon this image. Nice idea and well composed.

I like the concept, but the pieces seem a bit blurry to me (and have a noticeable amount of noise) and the light seems a bit too harsh (and warm). I would have liked it better if I could see more detail on the pieces and if the lighting was closer to white light (a little colder, almost blue).
