Who says "busy" pics can't work. The lines and angles in this are great. B&W was perfect (but a sepia tone might work well too).

Good shot... maybe a litte more shadows would work better

Ahh... gym. The high school class that I hated the most, but it does remind me of the good old days when Joe Louis was boxing.I give a 9

Very good composition. I agree with the choice of B&W for this shot; it works well here.

Love the B&W. Cool view.

Pretty nice facility. The white bench/glare around it are the only problem item I can see in this. I like having demonstration/activity, but this works, too. 8 Swash

This is a fine picture and I have revisited a few times. You have turned a place of sweat and muscle into a place of beauty and serenity. Good craftmanship. Could you do a couple of portraits of me, too? :)

where did you find an antique gym?

Don't see too many real "gyms" around anymore. Where's the stereo?

intersting composition; good use of lights and darks, contrasts in shape and line

Great! Everything leads the eye back into the picture.

This is a really nice black and white.. I particularly like the perspective you chose.. the diagonals in the floor keep this photo from looking 'plain'. excellent shot.. = 8 - jmsetzler

I find slightly distractive elements on the top left and right border. Otherwise very nice.

Great work. I like this b/w - crisp clean - lots of shapes - good lighting. Really wonderful work.

To have so much stuff in it, I find this to be a really simple, clean picture. I like that. I think the black and white works very well, too. Though I really like the "stillness" of it, it would have told a neat story to show a lone athlete resting on a piece of equipment. But that would be a different picture. Don't change this one! karmat

It surprises me that I like this shot so much. It's so complex, yet so organized. Simple shapes, simple lines -- all forming an intriquite design. Great tones as well. Very nice photogrpah.

This shot, with the emptiness, works really well with b/w. The picture is composed really well, well done.

haunted feel to this, lik everyone suddenly left. Could see this as a 'scene setting' shot for a series of studies of smaller parts of the scene. E.g., the rope on the bars, a ring, etc.

i love this contrast.. a calmness

Great atmosphere here ! The b&w adds a lot, and the white furniture gives a little touch of accentuated contrast very pleasant. Really nice picture, congratulations.

Nice, clean, simple shot. I like it, and the black and white definitely adds to the old fashionedness of it.

B&W gives a timeless feel to this photo

Great b&w. I like the retro look of this. I'm assuming you opened the door on purpose...nice touch. 9 Lisa
