try not to take any of this the wrong way, it's just an honest critique.
your lighting, as always is superb, though, that one behind the top model is a bit odd... i'd rather see a bit of halo showing her curves than that hot-spot (combined with the dark dress/background combo) that blinds us from seeing much of her.
the poses however, i find basic at best, awkward at worst. the top model certainly looks, um, uncomfortable. the composition also, on both is a bit boring.
honestly, i really like your photos that take something a bit ugly and make it interesting or beautiful. the chick photos are usually a bit ho-hum.Please participate in our Member of the Month polls. Every vote counts! And remember to use the user reputation system!

The light that looks like a star burst effect or whatever looks tacky. >_<"
The 2nd model looks like she has no neck. I like the lightning in the 2nd photo though.

I was just doing some basic shots for the girls. I do have some ideas, it's just difficult getting people to cooperate to test them out.

Models posing at an abandoned warehouse... sexy? I guess... The solar shine just looks out of place and a little tacky. It's best to learn subtlety in your designs layering small elements than just one big one. It's also too contrasty and doesn't look at all realistic nor does it blend in, in anyway. Try to expand your skillset w/o relying on cheap filters, you'll become a better designer in the long run.

And actually, there are two lights to the left. One's an B800 with a CTO gel that's underexposed to just light the model at about a stop and a half under the correct exposure and the second is a gelled Nikon SB something or other with a grid spot on it to focus on the model's upper body.
There wasn't much editing done in post. Sharpening, curves, skin smooth, and maybe some touch ups here and there, but nothing was added in after wards. All the contrast was create by lights, not filters.
I'm a photographer, not a designer.
