Checkmate !

Chess is a favorite game of my, so I had to do this.
I constructed a more or less realistic placement of the pieces and put a chess clock on the side of the board. I also placed the chessboard in the sunshine to add shadows and to make it more 3D.
I used a wide aperture to make the queen and king really stand out and to add bokeh.

    My husband loves to play chess, but no longer has anyone to play with. Too bad you're so far away. The photo is nicely done.

      Yes, it's a pity when your husband has no one to play with. One can play chess on the internet, but that's not the real thing.....

        He doesn't use the internet. He's almost eighty and can barely use his smartphone for anything but calls. He refers personal interaction.
