This is definitely the better of the two! this is superb, the detail ins spot on! -BJ V

Beautiful job of this. You have avoided my biggest problem when I shoot something like this and that is reflection of the light source off the object. In fact, I have trouble figuring out where you put the light. Excellent work! V.

Ah yes, the musical....!! I like the opaque glass against the darkness. A beautiful board Scott.

Very nice lighting and composition.

Reference the title - I never saw the play that produced these lyrics.... but I would like to:

"Bangkok, Oriental setting
And the city don't know what the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
Show with everything but Yul Brynner

Time flies - doesn't seem a minute
Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boards in it
All change - don't you know that when you
Play at this level there's no ordinary venue

It's Iceland... or the Philippines... or Hastings... or... or this place!"
Bill Warren07-Jun-2007 18:09
