Thanks for the many comments on yesterday's shot. I thought I'd put up one more from the chess tournament. These two guys were playing some seriously fast chess; if you haven't seen high-ranking players play the game, it is quite fascinating. A player would stare at the board for a few minutes contemplating a move, then there would be a flurry of arms moving as the player finally moved his piece and both players quickly rearranging their pieces several sets of moves down the line. The play would go in bursts like that, where each player would think so many steps ahead. Fascinating.

Interesting perspective.

I actually like this one better than yesterday's. I think because of the perspective and the focus on a single match. Plus the b&w tone.

Good opening! ;-) I liked yesterday's a lot, but hm, I must say, this one is maybe even better!

Ah, that's different - a nice refreshingly different angle.
