Yes, of course. I think this one is the most succesful and another one, similar but closer. Here we go...

I particulary like the last one, with the shoes, the tilted background and the implied diagonals.  I like the rest also - the black images on the red background work really well for me.

Nice work!

I'm big fan of silhouette photos. First one is just beautiful if I've to pick one; all are nice photos of-course. Thanks for sharing, Paco!

Ooohhh Paco.great stuff!
the first one is  the most eye catching for me, but i'm a bit distracted by the white/yellow dots behind her back.

The 2nd one is more mysterious.

As a series, it just breathes excitement and seduction to me. Great stuff.

For the full body shots, i would have liked it if the whole legs would have been silhouetted by the red bg.

Thank you all. I play with cleaning the background into pure red and a version with the white spots remuved and decided against it. Feel free to try. I also will have liked for the red wall to go all the way down for the full body shots, even try with jumps for that porpouse and lifting her on my own arms to no avail... It was fun to try anyway :)

Very nice!
I specifically like the second one for it's graphic novel style cut and framing.
IMHO it has an outstanding balance between red and dark areas.
