As I was driving home I came across this workout bench sitting on the corner of a major intersection. I parked and took a few shots of it; I think for this one I steadied the camera against a light pole, but I'm not sure. Ambient street lighting only.

Cropped, resized, and sharpened; no other processing.

From the moment I saw this photo I had to smile. The title says so much about the health craze. It is so amusing to see that sitting out on the street corner.

Your lighting here is good, the focus is also good, and you know I liked this from the beginning but now looking at it I wonder what it would have looked like if you had tried to use a shallower dof leaving the lights and buildings in the background more blurred.

To bad you didn't have Isaac with you to work out while you were taking the photo...would have made a much strong statement about night out on the town. Overall, I think this was a very humorous take on this challenge. Nicely done.

Too bright. Good find, but not all that interesting to look at.

This picture makes me laugh! I like your thinking. It's also a very clear, crisp photo. Good job.

This is humorous and nicely photographed. I particularly like the three bright lights in the background. Unfortunately, there is something about the tan tone of the foreground that takes away from the city lights in the back.

I think using the white lines on the junction would make a better picture.
