The first thing i notice here is that the mouth and eyes are out of focus.  The focus is on the ear.  This immediately distracts me from the emotion here.  I love the mouth.  It is just right, but the eyes look squinted.  I find myself confused on what this image is trying to say.

This is great.  Very crisp and clean.  The expression on the woman is perfect.  I can feel the longing or loneliness she is feeling.  The way her hand is holding her shirt really adds to it.  Perfecty expressed.

This is a fun shot, and i can see a lot of work went into it.  However, the expression feels forced to me.  It can be hard to make an expression look genuine.  But that is what it takes to get the viewer to connect.

not bad, just feels like it lacks emotion.  and maybe that is what you are going for.  I find the fact that the beard is in focus and the eyes out of focus distracting me from it though.

Here is one smile

In the middle on this one.  The expression almost looks blank to me.  lifeless.

This is a perfect example.

The pose is great.  With the right face expression this would be perfect.  But there seems to be no emotion in her face.  Is she excited, shocked, embarrassed?

Perhaps that's good: it's certainly supposed to be something that would be difficult to describe using words. Trying for enigmatic, a surreal variant of that enigmatic Mona Lisa theme.

My thanks.

Shows a feeling of shyness, while at the same time an excited look.  Well done.

I really can't tell if its a look of passion, tiredness, or happy.

The top one works.  It feels sad and alone.  But the bottom not so much.  the expression is almost one of warning!

I think this one is very well done.  I felt as though I just walked in on you unexpected.  The look on your face says it all.  Great work. 
PS.  I would love to work with you if you are ever in my area.  You would be a great addition to what I do!
