Another obscure username, but it is an actual member.

Here were my other name choices. I went with badchess because the picture isn't any kind of chess layout. So for the chess experts, I went this route. Did I pick the right one?


Set the chess set on a table against one of my soft boxes and shot into the light.

good shot, so I can't see what's "bad" here

Would have been better if the King was lying on it's side, reflecting the "Bad" part... and if the surrounding pieces were Black
