3 things that jump out at me -

1) Cool shot! I like the processing and lighting a lot
2) his eyes appear to be different colors?
3) I would "heal" his blemishes a bit more (purely subjective).

Lighten the shadow on the side of his nose with the brush a bit and remove blemishes as mentioned above. Lighting highlights blemishes!!

Yes... I too noticed the eyes... Will make the changes if he picks this one as one of his selection... No sense in editing 100% if he isn't going to pick it...

Maybe worth noting to him then that it can be fixed as it may dissuade him from making the selection.

I really like the first one, although the second one is nice also!

In the first one, his fingers look really dirty...they need to be lighten a little.

First and second one look like you placed him in the background, like composites.

I actually like the third one the best. Might want to warm his skin up a bit (maybe check white balance) and then as mentioned previously, regular portrait retouching steps. I much prefer this shot.

I'd almost like to see the original shot of the 2nd pic you posted.
