Thank you for sharing these shots!!!
Very good shots and very nice B&W...
Nice job !!!
the third and the last one are beautiful !!
Great set. Chess is a surprisingly photogenic game. Really like the last shot, that hand is very textural.
This is a FANTASTIC series of portraits. The levels, textures, and clarity in them is top rate. Impressive stuff.
awesome job...great tones for b/w . love the last one most!
Great tones. love the black and white
Awesome black and whites. I really like that last shot!
Great series. I dig the way you tell the story. The whole work is great, not only in composition and framing but in processing as well. You really know how to handle photography ;)
Great story. Like a mini documentary.
I like the series.. but my favourite is undoubtedly the weathered hand holding the chess piece. Wonderful shot!
wonderful series! he seems like a real handful!
I'm glad you found him.
I simply LOVE that last shot. What a great image.
I copy the last comment.. Simply LOVE the last shot. WOW.
A great set. I really like the refelection of the board in his glasses. Nice one.

Nice series. All are awesome.
Wow. The story is as cool as the shots. And I'm with everybody else... that last shot is fantastic!
Great series. Whata guy!
Fantastic stuff. A great series. The black and white is perfect for the subject matter. The last shot in particular is superb.
these shots are amazing...every single one.
Sweet series, Miles. Great story told in snapshots!
Really nice serie of pictures !
I love the story behind them... and it ends with such a great shot !
Wow, street photography at its best!
Very nice .... specialy last one !! ...
You've outdone yourself, and given us something to aim for. These photos are classics.
Miles these are superb and so well put together, I love the fact they are B&W, did the chess colours influence this?
Brilliant, Miles! Love it. Your portraits, and b&w conversions are just fantastic. Do you care to share your b&w conversion secrets?
Excellent series. The last one is just great.
great ones. did some street-chess shots lately too. but failed to get so close. really love the first and the last one. the expression in the king's face is priceless :D
the last one for its details and the view which gets one close to the game. great stuff
Wonderful series. I love the way you've captured Raul.
Fantstic series Miles. The first frame, with the reflection of the chess board in his sunglasses is brilliant. Beautiful and rich photo story.
Wow, I love the emotion of it all!
Thanks everyone :)
Raul is a bit of a local legend for his flamboyance but even so I was surprised when he got up and started dancing!
Wow! Great shots on every different photos!! Interesting with it's unique DOF and focus point, and composition!! oh, and the photos are well organised too!
A fantastic series. My two favs are the first portait and the las shot, the image of the hand. Thanks for this moment.
I love this guy. Great work Miles
the best series i've seen this summer. really... I love it.
Amazing serie! You captured the feelings of the moments. Excelent quality of the b&w pictures.
What a fantastic series! Reminds me of the fabulous short "Geri's Game". Kudos to your skills -- very very exciting!
These are some of the best shots I have seen in a long time. Excellent sharpness and B&W convertion. I really like the first and last one.
great story, well done, wow ...
I like these shots B&W was a great choice.
You find the most interesting characters! That's too funny...
The images themselves have a nice consistent look, and I especially like the closeup of the hand making the move. (bottom)
A great b&w story, wonderful portraits and moments... It seems to read a "comics" :)
Very very nice work!
This series is just brilliant. You've really captured a slice of Raul.
Just great series... Very impressive. Thanks
