Again, the oil seems to be more noticeable than you would expect. Not that it detracts from the beauty of the man's body.
Makes me wonder if different amounts of oil should be used outdoors.
I don't think I have ever seen a photo of Gene where he wasn't oiled. Not complaining!
He always looked good regardless, but some guys looked like one slip and they'd be in the next county.
The oil does seem to make the models stand out from the natural setting here and from the texture of the tree. Looks good.
I hadn't thought of the contrast element, but you're right.
