Aussie G,

Even though these shots are well done, I'm going to have to rule they don't really show a recognizabale face for portraiture purposes. At least none that I can see on my laptop.

Aloha

@Selvin
You can catch a glimpse of an eye in #1 but I also feel that isn't enough.

@Aussie
Please provide another photos where more of the face is visible so we can see the person, too. Technically nothing wrong with the pictures, I just miss the portrait.

I agree. A portrait should feature the face not the head. With the head covered with a helmet, even the head isn't featured here.
