The word derives from the Greek γυμναστική (gymnastike), fem. of γυμναστικός (gymnastikos), "fond of athletic exercises", from γυμνάσια (gymnasia), "exercise" and that from γυμνός (gymnos), "naked", because athletes exercised and competed without clothing.


For this shot i was covered with oil.
An external flash was used & a black backdrop on the wall.
RAW file,adjust shadows/highlights,sharpening,convert in b&w,increase contrast (a lot)!

Very nice, except you should have taken the necklace off. Cool shot, though

author says:

This necklace was a gift from my mother (is a cross) so i never take it off.
But you are right...it would be better with out it.

A magnificent "X" !

If you were covered in oil - who took the shot? I don't mean to offend but the lighting aroungd the feet make the shot look like a chop

avatar FallingHorse

And now that I know who you are - I doubt that it was chopped

avatar RayTedwell

Fallinghorse, I think the effect you are looking at is a result of dramatic contrast adjustments. That caught my eye too.

author says:

That is correct RayTedwell!.
I used a remote to take this photo FallingHorse.
The flash is on the ceiling ,to be more accurate on the ceilings light
