I'm not worthy of much note, but I think the from-the-top viewpoint doesn't do as well as a more horizontal "through the pieces" look. The problem I have with the first one as a chess player is that it's an impossible position and therefore obviously a setup. The second one has too much in focus and would benefit from a less vertical viewpoint.
Get down behind the fallen king, looking more or less horizontally, and with the king in focus show that he is surrounded by enemies. You'll have to move the taken white pieces out of the way.
It might work...Show more →
Thank you. Image one is a figurative "check mark" With the fallen king representing Defeat.. Image #2 is a reproduction of the final board in the 1972 Fisher - Spassky 6th game. Spassky conceded when Fisher's move created a "Forced Mate".. Thank you for the input. The chess set is "Tiny", maybe 4x4 inch with 1/2 inch figures. I Leave the big board at home when we travel. I am posting 2 more today as we narrow down our WA entry. Jim (Credit need be given to Chuck Gardener for the chess photo's idea. Thanks Chuck)
