An abstraction of power held static.

Interesting view point. If you hadn't mentioned it was on an exercise bike, I would never have guessed.

I like the rim lighting on the upper torso as it gives definition to the silhouette of the figure.

Sort of an action shot using a view camera; not an easy ask.

Thanks Mick. This was made during my "Bill Brandt" phase under the influence of his Perspective of Nudes book. A wide angle lens on a view camera pointing up steeply from floor level is hard to focus as well as being a contortionist's nightmare.
