In my opinion the problem with this shot and the other you posted, is that the subjects aren't doing anything. They're faceless, but just standing around. They might work, if the masks were hanging down so that we could see the faces. They might work if, mask and all, they were doing something relevant. As it stands they're pictures of anonymous entities, doing nothing.

they are more of portraits if anything, and we cant have our masks down inside the field, i have a bunch of action shots that i am working on, should be up in the next few days. And on the entity issue, we know who we are by the gear we use.

It may be that you can make this "idea" work. I don't know - tough job to present a "portrait" of someone to strangers who have no clue. Torgny presented such a portrait, and it works. You're going to have to think of something.

Although mostly masked, I actually like number 4 in terms of expression and composition. I know you probably didn't get much pp done yet, but increasing contrast and saturation would give it some punch.
