Great subject, nice lighting but for me the first photo needs just a bit more DOF. The eye furthest from the lens is just a bit too soft, the second pic has the head turned a little more, both eyes are sharp. Much better picture. Cheers,

Just read a few more comments here, need to clarify my own.

I totally agree with parts of a portrait subject to softness from shallow DOF but I have trouble with soft eyes.  Your pics are really good and the eyes pull you in, thats when you notice the eyes in the first are not both in focus.  OK, each to their own and I like artistic styles but these two pics call for sharp eyes IMHO.  Fun stuff this!
