Hail To The King

By shutterbugcrazy  
I seen a different version of this shot here on ephotozine so I added my twist to it. The glass chess board was resting on four small wooden legs and a small soft box (500watt bulb) was laying underneight it. Covering the soft box was a sheet of hard transparent dark blue plastic.

Fantastic shot, well thought out

I'd love to take credit for the idea but it's been done before on ephotozine. I just added a different lighting idea to mine. The one I seen has regular light coming from above where I added the plastic to the lamp from below.

Lovely shot, I like to see ordinary objects taken in a new light.

Looks like an ice sculpture. Great lighting. DOF enhances the effects. Nice one.
