Picture 1 is outsanding and lively and interesting for a book cover! (first choice)

Picture 2 is generic and too composed.

Picture 3 is better than picture 2 but is still cliche (second choice).

Picture 1 is my first choice.

Picture 2 is generic and amateurish in a bad way.

Picture 3 is okay but maybe cliched.

Picture #1

Does this have to do with the one piece of a story we read about the girl becoming a stripper? I think you posted it awhile back..

Comparing 3 and 1, 1 just has that extra magic from the stripper looking at the camera!

I'm having a wierd deja vu experience. Is this posted twice in two different threads?

Me too.. that's why I picked #1 and the pose goes good with the title...

On Pic #3 all I see is ASS and wouldnt get my attention in a book cover.. I see why all the guys like it They would buy it!

Pic #2 is just too boring.. Not stripperish enough..

I would just have to echo the delegate from Smileylandia's sentiments on this topic. Picture number one accurately portrays the image that the title projects, and is more universally appealing.
I yield my time to the chair.

Yeah, this is the cover for the same story you read. That wasn't the actual novel that was just a detailed summary of the novel.

these are just the raw photos, they haven't been retouched. All models have fat and cottage cheese, etc. before PhotoShop. Wait until you see the finished cover, I think you'll like it. That's why women should never base their image on the covers of magazines, they're not real. But first we have to decide on the right cover for the photo. I didn't want a super skinny model because I want her to be like a real Latina, not perfect. I think there's a terrible message about having to be skin and bones in order to be classified as beautiful. I think this girl is beautiful even though she has meat on her bones, in fact, I think she's beautiful BECAUSE she has meat on her bones. So she can have all the rice and beans she wants .... eat up mija! Hahahha

I like 2. I like that she is closer to the camera. It makes for a more personal attachment for the reader. The fact that you can make out the features in her face goes a long way in providing the reader with an idea as to the personality and attitude of the character portrayed.

Well you did ask............
And my suggestion of another model had nothing to do with her thickness.
Will we get to see the re-touched photos or are you just going with these proofs?

No, I appreciate your honesty. I'm just explaining why it's important not to only have skeletons on the covers of magazines ... you know? There's so many other forms of beauty ....
