i dunno. I like it too, but 6.0+ for a picture of playing cards is very good. I don't think I could ever get a 6.0 on anything with playing cards.

i don't understand why this one didn't win. this is the perfect use of extra saturation and the composition is excellent, not to mention you've captured the concept of an Oxymoron perfectly.

Beautifully clean, brightly illuminated, nice nail polish, composition, focus, and DOF. I'd prefer betting on a pair of queens, e.g., queen of spades plus queen of hearts, but I like the image.

Well, did you win? :D It was a sure thing right? He-he. Very nice job of putting the oxymoron together with an appropriate image. Finding that not a common circumstance in voting this challenge thus far.

Very well captured photo. Nice composition. I like the shallower DOF. Well focused with good bright colors and lighting. I hope you do well with this. My top pick for the challenge at this point. Good luck!

I guess depending on the game you are playing. King Queen off suit may not be the sure bet, but then again we don't know what was on the flop. Nice lighting and concept
