Suggestions for where to go with this.

A friend of mine is uploading some of his music to iTunes and needed a photo to go with the album. This photo is what we did in the studio the other day. I am stuck for ideas on what to do with it in LR or PS to make it better than it actually is. I would be grateful for any pointers. I know there's bits and bats need tidying up on the model's skin but apart from that what could I do to give it a little bit of "wow" factor?

I can upload the RAW file if anyone wants to have a play about with it but I don't know where to upload it to.

Hi DDJay, it would definitely help to know what kind of music is behind this mystery :-) I mean a "Tango" edit wouldn't make much sense to "Techno" :-)

Hi Amica, it's a dance mix of a bhangra (indian style) song.

Re: Suggestions for where to go with this.

Not so much an advice on how to deal with this picture, but more an advice on the picture itself. I think it would be better if the man was doing his thing, focusing on his music and have the woman look at him. That way she would want him, desire him, increasing his status, instead of the other way around how it is now, him wanting her, lowering his status. Take a look at the picture and ask yourself who's in control. Just a thought.
