    We do a little bit of everything at Vegas Vision Studios This is from a recent intimate couples portrait session and yes the tattoo is real! The tight crop on #1 was done at the behest of the client.

    WTF is wrong with the face of the dude in your avatar he looks like someone stuck a corndog up his butt?

    Seriously C&C is welcome and I am new here and don't know any of you yet but coming out the gate at me with a What The F*#K is no way to start off.

    To answer your so rudely posed question the guy is 6'6" and she is all of 5'2" and she has her head buried in his neck thus blocking it as she is sitting in front of him.

    I personally prefer the tight crop
    but his head does look a little bit mutilated in that one
    But i suppose it can't be helped much though.

    I'm a little torn about the tight crop in #1. I think it works great for her, but it just feels too tight on him. I'm thinking that it might work as an even tighter crop, but mostly from the sides, changing the aspect ratio. It would fully show her and her tattoo while showing just enough of him to know that he's there. Just a thought.

    I love the symmetry in the 2nd one, but it's sort of ruined by the angle of his legs. I also feel that it's hurt by the lack of detail in the backdrop, specifically right under them. It looks like they are floating (or worse, were cut out). Although, it might just be that I can't see some of the shadow detail on my monitor here.

    Overall, I think they are well done. I like the lighting, except for the spots where we can see a hard shadow line falling on him. I really like the concept you & they are going for here.

    i with Mike on this. i am leaning toward the 1st one, but i am put off a bit with the loss of his knees.

    the height difference is a bit of a challenge, but that is one terrific tatoo, i would want to shoot that myself.

    I like your pics - creative, original.

    The one thing I would like to see a
    bit differently is in 2 to make it more
    symmetrical, ie his legs would be the
    same amount showing on each side
    and none of his face showing.

    I think this has a lot to do with personal
    preference and therefore is not really a
    negative factor.

    I like your #2 the best.

    Thanks to all for the constructive comments. It is amazing how differently one person to the next can see an image.
