Please take these with a grain of salt as I am an amateur of no talent, but as no one else has I'll offer comments and maybe learn something from the responses to the comments.
I get the grain for a hard or grunge look, but to me it is overdone to the point where it softens the photo subject and takes away the contrast between subject and background. In the first maybe also crop the bright upper left corner. I like the pose and frame.
The 2nd is my favorite, maybe because of the Motley tat, but also the subject stands out the most in that one.
