The serious portraiture (#1) looks great.  I wonder why the under part of his chin looks cut out, though...

#2 is absolutely phenomenal!  Again, the art of timing and shutter speed!

In the first, there is a safety "high"collar to what he wears.

I see.  Maybe you could raise the dark area to appear the collar ever-so-slightly visible?

Nope, I don't! :)

I tried to go quite further… you think that's enough?

Thank you for your generosity!  Yes, I would think that just the suggestive outlining of the collar is enough.

I like the edit of #1 with just the outline visible

and another enthusiastic vote  for #2, it is brilliant !
