Set this up in my basement. Made a platform to fit on top of the ping pong table so I could lay on it and raise my legs above the sign. Used wall paper that looked like bricks for the brick wall. Used 2 large sheets of blue cloth fastened together for the sky. Set the back end of the bike up on a couple of boxes to make it look like it was flipping up. Lighting was just 2 large ceiling fluorescent lights from either side. Cropped, slightly saturated the colors to try to hide the seam in the blue cloth, sharpened and used Neat Image to remove some of the grainy appearence in the sky. This was one of the most complicated and time consuming pictures I have tried to compose because I wanted it to look as realistic as possible. I still saw several flaws but ran out of time and energy! It took over 100 shots to get to the final one. Hope you like it.

Wohooo! This is definately my favourite for this challenge, no matter what pictures are still to come. Reminds me of graphicfunk's "Ouch, no servicable parts inside". Funny, well executed, dynamic, well composed. 10.
