    Enigmatic and a little surreal, both from the medium (his head in clouds) and her Mona Lisa-like visage. Very nice!

    Actually,

    It's a rich image. They're matched in revealing their chest, but he has much more layering of clothing. Most prominent is his look at us while his left hand goes down to her inner thigh. She take this and is still dignified.

    It's such a nice portrait but a shame you didn't shoot it on regular film or with a digital. Alternative processes done with flaws are detracting.

    Great idea, Frank!

    We could simplify the picture further for a really clean look. Make a large black solid square and by it a gray circle with a V neckline in each. That would carry the same motif. Printed 30"x40 inches would be perfect!

    A diagonal white to black bar would represent his left hand! Much more elegant!

    I just prefer to have emulsion on the photo, you know, in the face area of a portrait.

    Sometimes it's good to have a backup, particularly when you're working in a medium that is so prone to defects.
