Very Arty, although i feel it may have been better if the highlights on the models ear were not there and that part of the image was 'in-black' as it would serve as a natural vignette for the image and draw the eye to the centre of the frame.

I could imagine this as a poster that you would get from somehwere such as Athena etc

Thanks for sharing

The composition of the original image is really very good and lends itself well to the construction of this image.

As it is so obviously a constructed image there are several things I would do with it...

The ears are really distracting and I'd clone them out, along with the catchlights on the dark areas on the breasts. I would really like to see something done to the bright light along the lines of having a old flood light with 4 barn doors as the source. I couldn't quickly find a suitable image of one to drop into this so I used a "Flash-n-Brolly" to illustrate my idea.

I think if done well this has very good potential as an image.

Of course to really make it a great image you need Twins...:)

This is a 5 minute draft for illustration of ideas and I'll delete if if you object.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I have since totally reworked this image and will repost the results today.

if you could do something with the chins it would help to - at the end of the day the model has to look attractive too to make such shots really work.

i may not be in agreement with the defined light source thingy - but that would depend on the thingy! A horizontally opening door (trapdoor) with light coming through might add something.....
