The only resemblance to one of his images is that the girls have their arms up.

Nope..2 naked girls is about as close as it comes to his work. Color, flat, not high fashion model types. Any resemblance in the images is purely wishful thinking on your part.

don't post a photo in serious critique and expect someone to praise you for shoddy work...especially if you try to compare your work to Newton.

Frankly, in basketball terms, it's like a 5th grader comparing himself with Michael Jordon.

no your image is far to technically insufficient to be mentioned in the same sentence as newtons work

the only similarity is fully naked females feature in the image newton made and the one you have made by trying to copy the idea and framing

had your main lighting not been through blinds and more controlled (way to distracting and causing light issues through out your image) had you set up fill lighting correctly instead of trying to rescue/add/adjust it far to much through post work (you can see it in the shadows, especially rear girls face and arms), had your thoughts been on a black and white lighting setup (color and black and white need different approaches) and focus on female form my opinion may have changed.

sorry IMO it fails

good effort but fails

It does not resemble Newton's work much in my opinion. While you may think that the important factor is the nude llamas, the main thing that differentiates your shot from Newton's work is the feel of the image. Newton's work portray's personality and depth beyond just what is visible. Your image lacks that.

In your example don't you see the eyes? Don't you see a clarity of message?
I'm not seeing that in yours.

Yours is nice, his is striking.

I am flattered thank you for liking me LOL.

In case you missed it..comparing that image to any work Helmut has done is an insulting as saying the VIrgin Mary would make a great stripper.
Putting the age of the models in the caption just makes it more creepy

Once again, I don't know why you even ask for a critique. Just because you take a photo of 2 naked girls standing there with side lighting doesn't make it a "Helmut Newton". While there are some flaws (as previously noted), overall, it IS a nice pic, just be happy with that.

the one thing I can see is that the newton girls had better hairstyles...

other than that, there is a definite similarity.

A comment that says it has a similar look to Newton, I'd agree. Like the big nudes, or one part of the picture. Nice light, lots of depth, pretty girls too.

It is not at all Newtonish in the respect of erotic implications or styling no.
