    Althougth shot in landscape I thought it would apply, I tried many crops but ended up with the uncropped version. I think it may be a little to centred.

    I prefer the composition of this one, but not the expression. I tried softening the picture by lowering the contrast, not really happy with that experiment.

    And again, another I liked , but the lighting is just to harsh, would like to warm it up a bit, any suggestions?

    I think these are a bit tough to critique.... mostly due to the lighting. The "straight-down" lighting in the first two is not very flattering, creating shadows under the brow, nose and chin. In the last view, you might think of the lighting as being reversed. You'll get better results if you light the front of the face.

    I hope this is helpful.
