Critical Position is a chess term with this definition: That point in a position when the evaluation will clearly turn to one side’s advantage or stabilize down to equality. In such a position the scales are delicately balanced and the slightest error can lead to disaster.

Amazing image! What a great concept. Very well done.

I seriously would hate to play that game... regular chess is already confusing enough.

Thanks! I never know how to explain or analyse my work, because when images pops up in my head I really don't know were they come from. But if they look nice I try to visualize them in detail, knowing exactly what I want to achieve before I start working on the picture. With this one, I also saw a possibility to read a deeper meaning into it, if anyone likes to do so. After checking the definition of the chess term Critical Position, the name was obvious.

Very nice looking. I like the "world-chess" feel created with the spherical board hanging in space like that.
