    Hey Travis and welcome to TPF!

    Some people say I have an excellent eye for detail, but I don't see any pics. :D

    i can only see three, but they look good to me. Although, i just dont seem to like number one. Not sure what it is, but its not doing it for me.

    I used a profoto compact 600r light with a softbox for both one and three. The second shot had about 6 lights all together.

    I like those but I have to agree that there's something that bothers me with #1. Maybe the contrast is too high. His teeth are one solid white area, the cigarette seems to have lost details, the shirt seems to have done the same in the highlight, etc.

    Love the guy in #3. What a face! Do you have any tighter shots of him?

    Yea the first photo was a pretty hard setup, shooting a really dark african american out in the hot texas sun without clouds can run you into some high contrast issues. Plus my editing is of a higher contrast and could have added to that. I appreciate all of your critiques. I have some other shots of the 3rd guy but in my library somewhere. I can find them and post more.

    I like the band members clustered around the car in #2...that looks like a classic Chevelle Malibu SS...I have a funny story about a car just like that. I like the house in the background, and the positioning of the guys across the frame.

    The guy in shot 3 reminds me of Alice Cooper! Thanks for posting.

    Right on, Alice Cooper would be a great subject to photograph. Almost had the chance but didnt go down.
