Well, they both have a lot of action, which is cool. But they're also really blurry.

I'd think about adding some sharper edges here and there. Sharp edges are easier to focus on, and are good for leading the eye around.

You could think about using edges to create implied lines of simple shapes across some of your objects. It's a pretty cool technique to use.

edit: Looking at the second image, you're almost implying an ellipse. It's just that some of edges (of the front dude's arm, for example) are so blurry they break it up. It's a little chaotic for my taste.

In the first image just pick a strong light source, because she seems a bit flat. Whit this it should help in making her pop out of the image. In the second one, try to use contrast to break up the foreground with the background in the second image because it get busy. Stuff in the foreground it getting too blurry and washed out as well making this image hard to read. You have definite lighting inconsistencies so must work on that. Find your strongest light source and shade and cast shadows from that. Any other lighting should not be as intense. I hope my two cents help. Great stuff so far, holla!:thumbsup:
