Technique Deconstruction

First time posting, but have been reading for a long time. Great place to read.

I saw this photo on 500px featured thread and I am trying to determine how the lighting was setup on the women in the middle and what processing was done afterwards.

http://500px.com/photo/2879413

I appreciate any thoughts or ideas.

My guess is that there is a reflector just below the subjects, although that could just be the golden reflection of the grain. Looks mostly like ambient light otherwise.

Re: Technique Deconstruction

I would suggest as the main ambient light appears to be from top/side left that the models also lit from high top right diffused flash maybe?

Possibly even a composite image as the girl right on image looks a little forced maybe?

Thank you for the assistance. I'm going to setup the suggestions and see how closely I can emulate the photo. I appreciate the deconstructions.
