    Too much background for my taste. The crop should be a tighter to put more focus on the person. Also, the images are kind of small to see any detail. The lighting looks dead on, like a flash or something. Looks like DOF is nearly non-existent as well.

    DOF you need some to get out some the distractions all around him!
    also get in a lot closer.

    I am not really sure that I would call this a portrait, more like snapshots of having fun?

    It definitely looks more like snap shots of having fun than a portrait to me - I would agree with the lighting needing to be changed and being closer to the subject xxx
