This is quite exotic picture for me - I've never saw people sitting in an open space and playing chess like this in Warsaw.

I think this shot works because of the range of attitudes that you captured and the tacit invitation for the audience to consider what is going on with each of them.  Also, the view of the board challenges those who know something of chess to 'find out what is going on' with the pieces.

 It is kind of fun to consider the fact that these are two parallel considerations.  Figuring out what each of the pieces are and what they are doing/ may do is appropriate to both levels of the work. 

Also, the technical quality of the photo is . . .as usual . . .meticulous.

It's hard to come up with a good title.
