If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!
... and what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)

A l'entraînement, au stade des Mureaux, Yvelines (78). France. Un moment de récréation sportive…
While I already have photos like this in my portfolio for "Day" and "Night" , this photo was commissioned for a night club and is also not warmed toned. Most likely it's going to be 30" x 30" or larger.
Taken for the weekend challenge thread "In pairs" of the Sri Lanka Photographers group.
Experimenting around with light and stuff around the house...got to say I had heaps of fun!!! :-) Thought I'd share what the set up was like.
For this shot and others to come I was trying to get the "studio like" lighting as I don't have a studio nor a lightbox. What I did was I used a glass stand put a piece of soft white tissue paper over it and arranged the forks. I did have a white board on two sides as the third side was a white wall. Placing the camera on remote shutter release over the subject I set the aperture around f/16 to get a good dof and to expose the subject at f/16 I set the shutter speed to around 10 sec and manually triggered the flash multiple times in different directions to simulate the "studio like effect" of multiple light sources. This is why you need a glass stand to direct the flash from underneath as well. I took several shots will post them as I process.
Sometimes, communication is better under surface of water.

"Ah, my friend, you do not know, you do not know
What life is, you who hold it in your hands";

"You let it flow from you, you let it flow,
And youth is cruel, and has no remorse
And smiles at situations which it cannot see."
I smile, of course,
And go on drinking tea.

I said "hey guy move a few inches to your left" and he did. He then throw up. This was shot in the Patco tunnel.
