    One of my other hobbies is Writing, which was the nexus of this idea. Letters are the elements of words, which form sentences, which... (and so on!)

    I had a few versions, this actually isn't my favourite of the bunch, but I considered what it looks like in thumbnail, and ended up opting for more of the other words being legible in the shot.

    I also added a soft black feather in the corners after seeing the 'abandonded' entry the other month, a slight crop and pulled the brightness up.

    I suprised myself after shooting the board with all my lenses, and the wide angle the kit lens offers ended up being the best.

    C&C always welcome (good or bad)

    I like the way the eye is immediately drawn to the word 'elements'. (well mine was)
    Good interpretation of the theme.

    Shame you didn't get a triple word score for "Elements"! Nice take on the theme.

    Thanks everyone...

    I may still get around to my first idea of combining the four elements in one shot... but i figured there would be better efforts of that so opted for something not connected with earth, air, fire, water...

    Cheers,

    nelson.

    I like this, especially the use of the other words, which i didn't notice first time round.

    Love the take on the theme. If only I'd thought of that first!

    From a fellow scrabble addict :D!

    That was the fun bit! - shame most of the words got cropped in the end, but they all related to storytelling...

    I tried to keep the shot dim and moody too, trying to get some character out of a Scrabble board is no easy feat!


    Ta very much for all the kind words too :thumbsup:

    I like this one a lot. Elements is definitely the predominant word across the board. The board itself looks rather weathered and adds a touch more texture to the shot.

    On a second viewing I can see where you were going with the other words. Good job :smashin:
