Some discussion about scale ... what is your intended point/message for the piece?
Are you trying to make an artistic statement in which the models are to be diminutive to illustrate the insignificance of their strength against the power of natural forces (wind/wave/ocean/time decay/etc.)?
Or, is this to be a marketing piece intended to draw attention to the models or the impact that models can have on a piece?
How to approach the use of scale @ compression/foreshortening/mass kinda depends on what/where the focal point of your intended message is. As an image, without a pertinent perspective/point, all versions we've seen so far have a degree of compelling intrigue to them for me ... but each one varies in what/where that is in accord with the changes. They key is to align your technique to draw your viewers to your message/point/intent. Thus, defining your intent comes first.
Karen has shown nicely how the use of a given technique can change the vibe of the message and draw us more clearly to a give area, which btw I'm diggin' the revealed muscularity in the second one.
Whether or not that achieves your goals/message for the image goes back to knowing what your goal/message for the piece is. The better/more detailed you can define your goals for a piece, the better you can use you techniques (camera, lighting & pp) to achieve that end. By the time we see the image, only pp remains at our disposal ... nice camera pano work, btw Even with all the lines in play, I'd have likely not guessed it.
Took a stab at the first one ... trying to retain the scale delta and still bring us to the models. Cropped knowing you've got plenty of pixels to play with even if it shows kinda small here.
As always, S&P to taste.
