Chill, Don - your previous post didn't get too much input because no one wants to say, "You managed to make DeAnn look bad." But you've gotten a lot of good information from folks here and have no reason to complain. And, I have to agree, somehow the dark make-up and generally shadowed face in the previous set just wasn't too effective - although I liked the outfit. I hope you'll try that again, but try a little softer, less directional lighting.
Here, in the first one, D is sizzling - but then I noticed the background, and got so distracted trying to figure out what it is that my train of thought was totally derailed. I swear, it looks like the hasps on a REALLY large, leather-covered chest. I'm not saying go back to seamless paper - but that background is - to me - too distinctive and too unorthodox for this image. BTW, I don't think it's legal for a wife to look that sexy in some states, so watch yourself.
OTOH, in the second image, it works fine because it suggests (probably because of D's interaction with it) some sort of restraint system. Maybe it's just my own perversity, but the second shot has a kind of submissive feel to it, but very subtly - certainly NOT in her expression. Interesting image, IMO.
