They're not bad candids although I think they'd be improved greatly by having a vantage point where he was facing the camera. I also think the first shot is a bit too underexposed for my liking

The 1st one is to dark you need to do some PP to adjust the brightness. The 3rd one does nothing for me, not an interesting pose, blocked facial expression just nothing to make it memorable imo.

The 2nd ok but would have been better to have him at least looking in your general direction.

If you shot that in RAW, then play with the exposure, it will fix it very easily. It will also benefit from some levels, it's too flat. Lightroom does wonders for pictures like this in an extremely easy interfase.

For fixing the 1st picture just about anything can increase the brightness, Picasa, paint.net, Faststone, etc...

For more advanced editing look at Photoshop Elements, Paintshop Pro, Gimp, Photoshop.

As mentioned earlier if you shoot raw it would be easy to adjust the exposure in any RAW program such as DPP, Lightroom, ACR, Silkypix etc...

With a lens that big, I'm amazed at how sharp your images are... no tripod?? or even a monopod?? How far were you from Mr. Aldrin?
