Great work.
I love that first one: the soft light, the frame in the frame, the  
position of his hands.
With almost no elements and without further explanation, you  
immeidiately understand what he's doing.

Dodging around and below window, and on hands in the 2nd one is a bit  
harsh and too visible in the second one. Feather more?

Thanks for showing,
