Three down, seventeen more photos to go until I finish my project.
Another great idea, Mike. This series is an amazingly creative and unique. The execution on this one is superb! Bravo! Can`t wait to see more from you.

@Nataly: Thanks. The next couple of pictures won't be completed for another 3 weeks or so due to holidays. I've got most the photos taken I need to complete them but still have to drag my very tolerant friends out for another shoot (or two).
wow - -reminds me of the chess battle scene in the first Harry Potter film! :) great PP work here and an excellently creative idea. bravo!

@dj.tigersprout: Thanks DJ. Having never watched or read the Harry Potter films/books I wasn't aware of a chess battle. My kids have the film so maybe I'll check it out.
It's really surprising ! Well done !

@Ana Lúcia: You're not the first one to say that. I must watch the film.

Although the Led Zep song title is appropriate (makes me think of those medieval battles) I like this composite picture, very well done ! A photoshop master ! :-)

@zOOm: The idea behind the picture was a battle between man and nature. I took the photo of the forest and then set the chess board to fit in. I wanted to depict a scene where the trees checkmated the King. King being the world leaders. I'm glad you picked up on the Zep title. I couldn't think of a more appropriate title even though it had been used before. My interpretation is slightly different to theirs so I feel OK about it :)
I like very much the composition you have created here, and the b/n.
The concept is fantastic and makes us to think about.

The chess board is on the slant, why is the pawn not running off, must be a piece of blue tack underneath. Interesting though. Also which part of the scene is in focus, is it the King?

@Peter Miller: You can play chess can't you? I'll leave it to you to figure out the meaning behind the picture.
Cracking image !!
