A Game of Chess


One of the first photo’s I took using my newly acquired Sony SLT-A55 digital SLR camera.  We we’re on a family weekend break in the UK at a holiday farmhouse, chess board and pieces where laid out on a large solid-wood dining table.  The lighting was perfect and after a few attempts setting up the camera I finally got to take this awesome picture.  One of my favourites.  Only wish the chess pieces where crafted from wood rather than plastic moulds, but the effect still looks good.
