    These are excellent images of these women. I think a tighter crop might be useful thoughÂ… Just my .02.

    I think they're great. I do know and understand the lighting you're describing and showing here and in my experience it's hard to get. Sometimes, mainly by mistake, I get it right on. Lol, so sorry, I have no idea how to achieve it because I also have no idea how to get it!
    Especially love the expression on the first gal. She has a very experienced look on her face.

    Jemmy! wow! Your clarity and focus are rock solid. I love the way your wide open lens clearly separates the subject from the background. Simply stunning portraiture!

    I think they're really nice, except that you cut the top lady's head a bit.... I hate it when that happens, its such a bummer!
