I don't know who Nathan is but I hope this submission is not out of context. I had some other ideas for this challenge.Again this is all new to me so I am experimenting with lighting, subject matter and post processing. I had another photo for this subject that was similar but this is the one I'm going with. Difficult to photograph yourself!

I am pretty pleased with the finish.In retrospect I should of portrayed the the message much better. This was supposed to represent someone working out in front of a mirror. I was unable to get a shot with the frame of the mirror in it that I was happy with.

Thanks for all the comments.

The subtle feel to this photograph really adds to the appeal of it. Nice job.

The crop is overly distracting to me. If the weights on the left were not in there I think this would be more appealing.

Very nice detail. A bit too underexposed, although it does have a good effect.

Fitness for using dumbbells, as I use them myself. But vanity
for taking a photo of oneself using said dumbbells. :-)
Okay, that was jealousy. My arms don't look that great yet.

IMO the dumbbell on the left side of the photo is distracting.
And also the lighting is a bit dark. Generally being on the dark
side is good to show definition of the arm, but having it a bit
brighter, will still show definition. B&W is an interesting choice.
Not bad or good. Color could have worked as well. I gave this a 6.
