Two ladies met on the beach of Praia do Forte. I got these smiles and forgot to fire the flash under that harsh sunlight ;(
Cropped, filter High pass to enhance some details, and made alternate use of Gaussian blur and USM + clone to soften the skin texture.

Belle portrait, j'aime bien le cadrage et le flou derriere. Malgre la lumiere, je trouve que les detailles et expressions sortent tres bien.

Beautiful capture of beautiful subjects, this double portrait would make a good poster. Yes, the light is a bit harsh but you handled it well. The tight crop is great. Before reading your note I was firmly convinced that the one on the left was a guy. Oh well...
Regarding the note, since the essential technical details are given under “more photo info”, I think that listing all these parameters which take a lot of space is not a good idea.

You got ME too here, Steven!
Person on the left - shorter face, thicker neck - I thought it was a guy, but both have nice smiles, so does it matter!?!?
I like the colour contrast between their skin colour (the light on their faces) and the shawl around their forehead & jewelry.
Nice compo as well!
