My first attempt at DOF. Wasn't as bad as I though it would be.
My first post here at this forum so hello to one and all.

Nice :) I like the lighting. Did you use HDRI?

I love the realism. It looks like a photograph.

Very nicely done - I'd like to see more of the board and pieces though, it's a bit frustrating that they are lurking in the darkness.

Nice. Very nice. Only comment is that I don't know what material you're going for on the "white" pieces.

Thanks tsu3000. Yes I used HDRI. The lighting consists of 1 arealight as the main light and a couple of fill lights. Your basic 3 point light setup.

Though I modelled the rest of the pieces, and arranged them in countless different ways, it always looked cluttered, so I went for the less is more route.
In hindsight I guess the background maybe too dark, but at the time I wanted the board and pieces to be the focus of the render.
Thanks for the feedback and taking the time to comment. :)
