The photography is stunning, but the face of the woman on the left repels me. I wouldn't have associated it with Prole, but it could, as one of the eds frequently says, just be me.

Really like the cover - I think it looks really good - striking and intriguing.

To be honest I'm not sure what people are going to think of the cover. As a photographer I've always been fascinated by the work of Helmut Newton. His pictures seem voyeuristic, as if you are looking in but feel you shouldn't be there. I decided to see if I could take some photos in a similar vein. This one pays homage to both him and a Robert Palmer album cover (Pressure Drop). Comments (good or bad) welcome.
