I like the second one a lot.

The composition of the first one is lovely but I think it might have been nice to see some sunshine on his face.

Here's something I tried in Photoshop:
1. Enhance->Adjust Lighting->Shadows/Highlights
Lighten Shadows 50%
Darken Highlights 50%
Increase Midtones 20%
Which brings up some of the detail that was too dark for me.
2. Enhance->Adjust Lighting->
Increase Contrast 20%
Brings back some of the contrast that might have been flattened a bit in step 1.

The best portraits are those that capture character, and I think your photos do that.
