Certainly meets the challenge but I'm having a tough time seeing how the pieces fit together. I guess for my personal taste I would have preferred a shot with the cast of three characters taken live while gambling.

I studied this photo long and hard and couldn't figure out what to say about it. I think Selvin hit on it. A photo of a group of photos doesn't quite do it. A live action shot of the game with these three players would be much better.

Thanks for the critiques. This actually happened after the game had ended. We were goofing around with the camera during the game (trying to get a look at each others cards ) and I decided to print off a few pictures for everyone. After everyone went home, some of the shots were strewn about the table among the chips and empty glasses and the dichotmy of black and white still life frozen against the colorful real world struck me as interesting and photo-worthy. Maybe this shot doesn't fit in this photo challenge, but it does contain three players...er...pokering.

Blake,

Please note that the critiques do not mean your shot does not meet the challenge. We are just trying to come to grips with the overall impact and artistic quality of the shot.

Aloha
