    This shot is pretty neat, David, especially the backlight from each chess piece.

    Hey! Hi Margot! It was one of those things, after shooting people all day I looked down and saw this chess set and candle and knew I had to shoot it.

    Nice one David, love the glow on the chess pieces, nice mood to it! :-)
  • ~Prescott said:
    Beautiful glow! You should try some colour too :)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)

    Cool isn't it ? Not bad for a quick, once off, shot. No post-processing either, straight from the camera (well via the lightroom raw processor).

    Obviously I'm going to have to hunt around for translucent chess sets. This one isn't mine, I just happened to stumble across it in the house of my soon to be sister-in-law's parent's.

    Very well composed, I like the consistent glow in every piece. A bit EEO making the queen in focus though ;-) Very good image, top stuff.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    Thanks, although I had to google EEO. :-P

    I like that light shining through the glass pieces - nice one, David

    Thanks David - can't really go wrong with something translucent and a candle :)
