A Kushti wrestler prepares the wrestling ground
Description: Born in 1925, the akhara (wrestling pit) was a gift from industrialist KK Birla to Guru Hanuman, a legendary wrestler and trainer, who used it to groom young wrestlers as world-class competitors. It was earlier known as Birla Vyayamshala and later renamed after Guru Hanuman.
Guru Hanuman was an icon in the wrestling spectrum in India, a media celebrity those days when sports did not only mean big bucks cricket, a familiar face around sports journalists at newspaper offices during the 1980s. His old akhara is considered as the epicentre of wrestling in India. It has produced some of the finest wrestling talents of the country.

Lighting

Love the lighting with this image. Iappreciate how you have exposed to allow some available rim light to complement the softer main lighting on the subject. The use of slow shutter spedd to evoke movement is also effective.However, I would have straightened the horizontal beams either in the initial construction ogf the image or in post. A very nice image nonetheless.
