Photo of the day: Three moves ahead

I took this photo of my neice Stephanie as she played chess against her mother. I wanted to focus attention on her look of concentration but still capture the setting, so I used a low angle with a shallow depth of field shot across the top of the chess board. I think, in retrospect, it would have been an even better image if I'd switched to my 50mm prime lens, which would have allowed me to use an even wider aperture. Still, I like this portrait.
