Cuts are pretty crisp which is a plus.

In the Sizemore the text placement could be better. I'd make it a little smaller and drop it in a corner somewhere, right now it's just floating out there. You could work on some coloring too. Try some color balances, gradient maps, and all that good stuff (both can be found by clicking the half black and white circle at the bottom of your layers palette in Photoshop).

In the Hanley I'd move Hanley to the left and the text to the right. I don't know, just seems that since he's facing towards the left he should be on the right of the sig, that's minor though and could be just my preference. Throw some color in that baby! Both could use borders. Just a simple 1px black stroke does wonders. Make a new layer on top of everything, select all > edit > stroke > 1px (or whatever you want) make sure it's set on "inside".

All in all both are good though, keep practicing and trying out different things and you'll get better in no time. ;-D

i agree with everything smoove said. my suggestion is now going to be player effects/lighting. duplicate the render a couple times, mess with the lighting/blending options on that layer and you should have an improvement.
