Friday night at the gym...


Photo Information
Dohert's Gym in Melbourne on a Friday night...after my initial misgivings of the K5's high ISO noise capabilities, I was glad to see I was wrong. Must have done something wrong on the first few I processed....

Fisrt class composition and conversion, excellent linear perspective.

Great view and stunning black and white, but why an empty gym? cheers Trixie

Great composition. I like the tube that runs full length on the right.

This has a sinister, unsettling look about it, Jon. But maybe I'm just allergic to exercise! Looking forward to seeing more of your K5 shots. I believe it's a genuine step forward in quality.
Best wishes,

Andrew

I agree with the two points Andrew makes, one is being allergic to exercise and the other the quality of the work. Hope I can manage to use my new K5 like this one day.

What a cool gym! Is this in some kind of old bomb shelter or sewer or something?

It's in some old railway arches near Melbourne Station.
