Ninette and Nora in a quarry. Available light with a reflector to get the catch lights in the eyes. 640 pixels sux!

Maybe they're concerned about being in that quarry...

What a fabulous photo. Whatever you did to process it is the bomb. Love it.

smoldering, sultry and luminous, this image also demonstrates mastery of the craft: tonalities are perfect, and the lips, which could have gone dull or muddy are glossy, wet, and the perfect tone, the robe and ribbon/sash are done so well, and of course, the beautiful models, their expressions, their eyes--just flawless all around. excellent b/w execution

great pic, love the eyes and the strong contrast and I am all about strong contrast. But the left nose is too strong makes her look clownish and same with the cheeks on the right. Still a great pic in my books. Best of Luck.

mind the shadows on their faces. a nice photo.

This would have been a very nice image, but for the highlighting of the noses. I find my attention drawn to them, unable to properly appreciate the rest...

Very beautiful models and intense pose!

Beautiful the models too. I really like the tones in this good choice of black & white.

That is just amazing. Beautiful girls, a great pose and super eye contact.
I would imagine the color version was also quite pretty, the robes look quite ornate.

very sultry. I like it in black and white but I wonder how nice the silk robes would have looked in color.

Nice photo. Like the lighting, patterns, and textures.

What is up with the title. Solicitude: "the state of being solicitous; anxiety or concern." The glamour and facial expression seems incongruous with Solicitude.

Great image. Piercing gaze. I love it.

I really like the high contrast in this shot. It's not a bad thing either that your models are beautiful. bump 9 Top 3 pick
