My dad owns a bowling alley in Rochester and i just happened to be there this past weekend. Wish this was advanced edit. Also wish this was a color challenge as the colors look cool.

And if you are ever in Rochester and you have a craving for the best hot wings ever give me a shout and I will tell you how to get to L&M Lanes. BEST WINGS EVER!!!

Post Challenge -
Slid into a ribbon. I won't complain.

This is a found shot. I expected to find it as I knew exactly what I wanted to shoot the moment the challenge came up. But it is found int hat I did nothing to set up the scene. I never touched anything on that cubby. Setup my light and took a half dozen shots and done. Very happy with the result. And a bit different of an entry for me.

Here it is in color - Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_939203.jpg

This is great, Tim! Looks like a poster in a modern art exhibit. I would know - I was just at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. ;)

Cool shot. This was my fav of the challenge. Thought for sure it'd ribbon. What I really liked about it...no real setup...just a naturally occurring setting. Most of the shots in this challenge had to be set up somehow to be interesting (including mine). This is the MOST interesting with no real setup! Or, at least it appears to be a natural setting in a bowling alley.

this was definitely a favorite of mine...I had this pegged to score much higher...like first or second at the very least...

Great shot! Very nice straight on-shot. It's very effective that you cut it out like this.

I like the two empty holes and the laces hanging a bit down too. It gives that little bit extra to the composition.
