They need to be cropped a bit to put you a little more central instead of being off to one side.

I quite like tighter cropping on shots like this personally

Good lighting though..... 8)

Thanks for the input but I prefer them as they are as cropping takes away the sense of someone lurking in or emerging out of the darkness, if you know what I mean.

i'm not a fan of tight cropping aswell, but you have a bit much space around you, I'd say at least get rid of half of what AL proposed.

I like the first one but I think the amount of empty space you leave there should be proportional to the angle of your gaze in that direction so a slightly tighter crop would be perfect.

I did say "They need to be cropped a bit to put you a little more central instead of being off to one side"

The tight cropping is just something I quite like not a proposal :D
