Lucis filter by any chance?
The skin PP looks almost metallic, try to bring back some skin texture and colour.
Also try burn out the halo around the subjects.
2 is probably my favourite, as it looks real, at least in part.
No, I get it, I think. You're not making a wedding album, you are trekking for the "artistic" approach. I'm assuming that's a "metal" type band you're shooting. No need to look like Ward and June Cleaver. The artwork in your PP sends a message to me about the band. Not so sure about the female jumping in the air...I mean I'm not so sure what you're trying to convey there. Anyway, I think it's great photo work for a metal band, if that's what it is. Probably wouldn't work for Pat Boone, though.
