    I am not a portrait photographer, so am not well qualified to provide constructive criticism.

    However, I do think you have created some interesting light in these portraits. It would be helpful to know your own thoughts, particularly what it was you wanted to achieve with these pictures. What effect/ mood did you wish to create? Do the final images match what your intentions were?

    On the question of posting your images into your messages, it would be much more helpful if they were embedded within your message rather than appearing as thumbnails. If you haven't already done so, please do read the help thread on the subject of 'How do i post images ...' which you can access via the 'HELP/Rules tab on the menu bar above.

    It is my view that you have achieved your objective very well.

    I think the one thing that all the portrait photographers on here is the need to always be thinking about the background. In the first and fourth images you have obviously set the man in a room with various belongings and pieces of furniture around him. I think you need to be aware of whether such objects cause distraction and interfere with the scene that you wish to portray, or how they can add to the mood and atmosphere.
