Love the second one 'but' personally I think dropping the exposure a little / boosting the blacks a tiny bit would help to bring him out a bit more.
REALLY hope you don't mind, I did a very quick n dirty edit off a screen grab - I will remove it if you want me to, just say and it's done.

Not at all, I love the changes, and half the reason I'm here is to learn! Thanks for the tips, I'll go play around with it some.
