Where is the bowl with the black stones? Also, the bowl seems to be a bit full - too many stones. It seems odd that a player would put the stone container on the board in the middle of a game. Composition is way too symetrical. Too many image elements pull the eye away from the board (flames, vases, pattern on floor mat.) If you go by the ‘rule of thirds’ the focal point of the image is a wooden post.
You have good contrast between the white stones and the dark lid of the bowl. And between the white and black stones placed on the board. Swing the camera point of view around to a close up and center the bowl on one of the third points, see if there isn’t an improvement. Or put the bowl on the floor (fix the scale of the tatami mat) and make one of the joseki a focal point.
You had a really nice beginning, with the close up image of the board and the supporting table. It did need context, a floor and cushions and so on, but pulling the camera back to make it a room that happens to have a go game in progress… Doesn’t help, IMO.
