Reminds me of "The Prisoner"-I suppose they must have had a chess game going, but now I've said it, I really can't remember

@CElliottUK: It does look as though it could come from The Prisoner, maybe we are only imagining it. :0
Great scale, where was this?

I like the "paul bunyan" sized chess pieces. They makes fine graphic elements for this shot. Very well done.

I love the symbolism that chess pieces can develop. I think it might be a little more interesting with a human in it. It would provide size and image perspective. Just a thought.

Love the angle you have taken this. They always look great but I have never seen anyone actually have a game with these huge pieces
