What composition could I have done to improve these? How do you like the b/w conversion? I added grain to the carriage shot for mood. Does it work?

2nd shot is fantastic :)
The 1st seems a little flat to me, even with the strong shadows, it looks like a photocopy :(

That second shot is absolutely terrific. The first one is just too much for me.

THanks all.

I did increase contrast on the first shot for the effect/mood that I wanted. I guess I went too far.

I too like the second one, one of my favorites.

Thanks for your input.

I agree with the above comments... and I have seen these shots before... have you posted them before here, or somewhere else? I'm having crazy deja vu right now.

yes posted before, sorry for the repeat. Here is the color version of the piper. I have grown to love the b/w contrasty piper shot. I agree that it is harsh. This was intentional, but maybe I went too far. Do you guys like the color version better? This was tweaked in ACR a bit but no photoshop clean-up or repairs.

Not too sure on the eyes in the colour one. Eye sockets seem to be a little too deep due to shadows. It seem's you touched them up a little in the contrasty one. Otherwise I prefer it. Although, I prefer the water bottle to be removed!

Yeah, 2nd one is superb. #1 is over-sharpened.

I really like the first one the best. Great contrast and very hard.
