Defeat 2

Chess and photography being my major hobbies, it is perhaps surpising I don’t have more pictures featuring chess. This is one set up for purpose, I think from one of my own games (which I won :p).

The lens is a bit of a mystery as the info wasn’t captured by the camera. But, the photo was taken at 17mm and f/16 to give enough depth of field to also get the Black king in enough focus – he is overseeing his troops’ victory on this side of the board. In Photoshop the major addition was the poster edges filter to give the cartoon-like look.
