This image in black and white has a very sexual indication. The model looks glamorous with her cigarette in her hand. The photo is using the rule of thirds.
This editorial shot seems to be capturing a moment in time and not be posed even though it more than likely was. The image showing three women and one man is interesting for its view of femininity and playing with gender roles as the male model has long hair.
This image is a good example of the rule of thirds. It also is showing movement with the blowing of smoke and dynamic lighting of the models hair.
