    I think the first three are pretty bad and just don't have that professional "POW" that the last one has. The last one looks really professional to me, clean, simple, well-done. The last one is great! Get more shots that look like that and you'll be golden like them teeth.

    The last is the best of the bunch, thats probably where I'd like to be working from. I'ts hard with the white background I think, I'm not sure if black would work though?

    Pic 1 & 3, are you using a camera mounted flash? You're getting shine of the face and it is really distracting. If it's not from a camera mounted flash you need to re-position your lights sources, or make your light 'softer'.

    The thing that really kills these two pics for me is that his eyes are out of focus. Get those eyes sharp. :)

    I have to agree, the last shot is all class.

    Best,
    Rhu

    The eyes not in focus was the first thing I saw. It is very obvious (and distracting). Same applies to his hair against the background in Photo 1. There he looks kind of "cut and paste" into a new background.

    Wow the last one is very underexposed on his face. The second one is very weird and boring the comp is also not that pleasing. the third is oof and bad comp the flash is also distracting. the first one is the only halfway decent one, though i would not use it on an album. its also underexposed.

    Your masking needs work, especially if someone is paying you. How about getting your subject outside on an overcast day, or in the shade?

    If you are using the magic wand, stop now! It is not a very reliable method of selecting pixels for masking purposes. Learn how to use the pen tool. It is the most time consuming, but it can give you the best results when masking.

    Only one real comment, I am sorry he paid you for these shots! Not trying to be rude but man these are not very good at all. You did a terrible job of clipping his hair (or whomever hair...:lol:) out. You should also remove the red veins in his eyes.

    I also don't like the third shot. I think the pose looks very positioned and unnatural.
