    I was going to, but as I'm the perfect gentleman I thought I'd defer to you. Anyway, it was quite funny

    It's a good shot subject, and the composition in the foreground is quite good. I find the white Queen very bright - was there some distinct light shining on it? It does tend to draw the eye first before I come back to the front King. What white-balance did you use? It looks a little warm to me. Perhaps s slightly cooler WB would have been better. Some of the background problems could have been avoided had you shot it with a wider aperture - say, f/4. Good attempt though at a tricky shot.

    No. there was nothing wrong from you. Rob and I both tried top post a similar message at the same time, saying that we had posted your image inline. But I changed my one to avoid confusion.

    Hello

    Thanks for your interest on this pic.
    I have used a SB900 flashgun and and another source of light (Home made using a Mag-lite !) in the plan of the chess board. White Balance was settled to AUTO. Your comment is very interesting, I'll replay this shoot by taking in consideration a new wider aperture and bring down K temperature. I had tried 2.8 but it was not the same thing and I had prefered this one, anyway I'll redo it ! I'm a beginner, it's good to experiment.

    A question. I have posted another pic for December contest but how to enlarge the pic. Is TinyPic a specific tool ?

    Thank you very much !

    Please click here and read this thread. This should help you with posting images into your messages. If this does not help, then please come back. Dave and Rob are much better at explaining how to do this than I am.
