the first one, for me the DOF seems bit shallow, i feel the hair is in focus but the eyes, specially the right one is out of focus.

the second one, i like it, but again, think the DOF is bit shallow, would of like the whole flower in focus.

great lighting tho.

I think the portrait looks Photoshopped to death and is unnatural. Cute kid though.

I agree. I never understand why people over-process a child. Their skin is naturally flawless. Makes them look like cartoons when their skin is softened so much. One thing to consider is the compression of the image. Perhaps it looks more natural in full size.
