I'm trying to develop my skill in portrait photography and as such I've been taking alot of photos of anyone and everyone recently.
I did a shoot yesterday and I would like some input and c+c on what I feel are some good images from the shoot.
I have done no post processing on these images other than WB correction, I know some need cropping e.t.c but I thought I'd ask on here first what you would do with them.
be as brutal as you like, if you think they are terrible photos tell me but please tell me why and how I could improve:

Though that first link shows a http:// link, clicking on it to see the photo shows it's actually a a httpS:// link on the web page where the photo is.

In that first image some fill light, reflected or flash, would have helped get light into his eye sockets.

The direction light is coming from is a major consideration when making photos of people.

Diffusion above and behind him would have eliminated having his camera left ear look like it's on fire.

Using a strobe light (flash) would also have allowed reducing the ambient light exposure so the sky behind the hood of the car didn't blowout (pure white, no detail).

I added fill light to the camera left side of his face, and to his eyes, and sharpened him.
