    I totally thought that same thing about the "pit sniffing" but I just love the composition of the rest of the photo aside from that. 1 does seem a bit overexposed. I'll see what I can do. Thanks.

    not overexposed, underexposed. The images are rather dark, and the faces are devoid of any goodlighting. Definately need to be lightened.

    the vignette in 2 is also distracting. to me.

    I like the redo better. The eyes really catch my attention.

    1)
    Best of the 3 IMO, except for the underexposure.

    2)
    I agree with D-B-J that the vignette is distracting. I would also have preferred the background to be a bit further away and out of focus -- the sharply focussed lines and imperfections in the background keep drawing my eyes away from the subject. And yeah, arm pits are bad :)

    3)
    The angle seems a bit extreme here. I can't see enough of the face and the forehead is overemphasized, which isn't all that flattering.
