I don't like the grain.
I don't like the temperature (desaturated warmness is not my thing)
Harsh shadow at neck0level is distracting.
Somewhat strange expression - I can't put my finger on it but something unsettling about it. Perhaps its the raised eyebrow?
Lighting looks harsh.

Sorry. I'm feeling rather negative.

To me the grain is so so, not really my thing but it seems to do ok for the shot I think you were going for
The second one is way to harsh with the lighting

I quite like it, but have to agree about the harsh shadows. You needed to either use a reflector, or maybe lessen the angle of the flash (It seems a little too side-on). ;)

I like it too, the top of her head is framed a little tight for me though. Seems like you were sitting on the fence, not sure whether to go right in tight and cut into her head or back off a bit. As mentioned, maybe try bringing the light around a bit so it's more on axis, or bounce a little light in there to soften the shadow. Nothing wrong with a bit of shadow though, flat lighting is so boring.

Thanks Scott & Jon! I was trying to get away with using one light ...there was a window to the right (camera right) and the light (1 580exII on 1/4 manual and 1 YN 460 through umbrella) slightly camera left. I tried to get the light as close to straight on as I could without it being in the frame.
I'll try more shots using the suggestions. Thanks again!!

You might also try a reflector to lessen a little of the shadow as well
