Thanks for the kind congratulations, my friends! Now, I have two versions of the same shot and it is interesting to see the differences - especially the differences a few years make.

Thanks to all who voted for it!

All best wishes,

Endre

Thanks 15bit! Your photo provided some really stiff competition. It's always gratifying to win but particularly so when the competition is so fine. Thanks for your vote.

All best wishes,

Endre

Was this a posed picture? The chess board is not in the correct position
White on the right. The board is "backwards"

Hi, John. Yes, this was a posed picture, but that is one of the "Opposites" It is opposite to the way it should be. Actually, I also wanted to avoid the seam in the middle of the board, which I could (and should) have easily cloned out. You chess guys have all been attacking the shot for that. I set up the board and move a few pieces to get it started quickly but then it became and (despite the wrong setup) Eva managed to win the game. Otherwise, I hope you like the photo.

All the best,

Endre
