    Okay - I like the subject - nicely posed, nice image. The background seems a bit off. I see 3 colours in number 1 (counting the door frame) and 4 in number too - its too busy for me.

    I notice that there's a fan hanging in the background. Is the setting intentional?

    The shot looks very professional to me.

    Both shots are good, however, the fan in the background of #2 is distracting.

    IMO #2 the fan in the background is distracting, the pose is odd look like your praying

    the first one is really great, it's a little bit narcissistic :mrgreen:
    I like the lights effects (dark on the top, light on the bottom). Black and white is also a good choice ;-)

    the second is more strange for me, the pose is like you're reparing your door... and the black shadow over your head seems to be a big wig :mrgreen:

    I agree with some of the other comments. The fan is distracting. The technical elements of the shots are very well done.

    Great tones, I really like how your "framed" by the doorway but your arm appears to step outside the "frame" when you hang over it. Technially it looks very well done but I have to agree with the others that the fan is really killing it for me.
