Description Anaylsis
Bond in front Unaware whats next protecting girl behind
Gun faced away from camera On guard
Blue lady behind Calm/sadness in control
Lady has gun point at gun more dominant she’s important than him
Bonds wearing a suit
Women has serious facial expressions Suspicious Masculin
Gun looks like its being held to head Bigger gun statue doesn’t know there because looking at us
Arms crossed
Half of her mysterious
Body language of bond open worried doesn’t look in control
White suit shows he’s vulnerable
Blue statue robotic doesn’t look like flesh got mystery

This shows that the two compare because the women in the first were vulnerable but in the second the women was in control being strong and powerful.
