he is also a singer and his last photo's were 10 yrs ago, so he asked me to take new ones. Luckily my neighbor has a yard great for photo shoots. C&C please. Thanks!!

These aren't bad but I think all of them would have benefited from some fill flash (I see you have a 430EX). Looks like a fun location.

Pity in most of them he is squinting? Maybe just choose one spot, preferably shaded, and then use your fill flash, .Keep the BG quiet, as not so busy with all the equipment,find one location and play! Look forward to more.

What bothers me the most is that all of them look very posed, especially #4. It should look more natural.

Thanks for the input. I did use fill flash on #1 and #4. I tried to tell him it was better to get him more natural, and he wanted to pose. The squinting was an issue. Are these any better?

^ Shooting at high noon was not your best scheduling. Early morning and late afternoon light does wonders for eliminating the squinting.

Except for the first one in the second set, the new ones are all underexposed as well. Might want to check your editing monitor for brightness.

The last set is far better, the first being the best for me.Still a slight bit bright, but I can see his eyes;)

I told him later in the day was better, so I will have him come up then. The last set was taken later in the day, and they are better. I adjusted the lighting, does this look better?

It still looks under exposed and there might be an issue with WB.

Lighting wise I think you could do a lot to save some of these images by using some adjustment brushes in the RAW converter, upping exposure on the subject and lowering in the background.

Here's a very quick edit I did just on the tiny JPEG using a layer of soft light and USM:
