Compositionally, I think you have a fairly strong image here. The cards help to "anchor" the shot at the bottom, and the stacks of chips help to lead the eyes up to Woody (who kinda looks like he is praying). It does seem a bit tight on either side, but I think for the most part, it is okay.

Technically, the focus and colors are good. The lighting on the woody is effective, but it seems like there is too much on the cards. If you could have "shielded" them so that they weren't as bright as Woody, it might have made Woody stand out a bit more. As it is, because they are so bright, they compete for the viewer's attention, just a bit.

You have met the challenge well. I'm sure there were some "anti-Woody" voters out there, but you still had a reasonably good response to the picture.

Best to you in future challenges.

Good composition and lots to look at. Shadows on cards are slightly distracting though.

Nice set-up, but you should have probably swapped the K & Q. It seems too shadowy to me.
