    Yes.
    Yes.
    and, again, Yes.

    Gotta watch out for head-chops that look accidental.

    Cutting off the top of a person's head in a highly-realistic or "neorealism" type of portrait is kind of a no-no.

    The suggestion was a square crop. The revision you posted is not close to square. Your profile says photos Not OK to edit so no one can post an example for you...

    I think it's an improvement and agree it would be better to not crop the top of the head. This might be something that as you become more experienced in framing shots and composing images that you'll be better able to see how to crop and adjust photos.

    I think you'd need to get onto your profile page to change the setting about photos being OK to edit; someone else may be able to tell you.

    With the two new photos it looks like the first one is too dark in the bottom third; he gets 'lost' and there's not much to see. The second one looks like the exposure might have been off, and for that kind of photo think about how you want the sunlight hitting the subject.

    edit - I see potential in what you've posted, and would suggest you work on learning about composition; try searching 'elements of composition in art' - yes, art - that should give you some websites (like Artsedge Kennedy Center, the Getty, Goshen.edu) for learners that teach about how elements like shape, size, color, texture, etc. are used in composition. Obviously you wouldn't have to do the lessons but there's some reliable info. to read and look at. You could also look up famous photographers and get your eyes used to looking at good photos and think about what they did in their photos.

    the images are great, just work on that framing. Almost every one of those the head is touching the edge of the frame and showing more torso/legs than really needed.

    It looks intentional on that third shot with the blonde hair and very good overall. but some of the others, like the girl on the white blouse, she looks jammed up into the top corner of the frame, with the majority of the image of her torso, so my eyes are only really drawn into her neck/chest.

    More chest on the last set! J/k. Those look much better than the first set as far as your cropping goes.
