Some Autumn Portraits - help me choose

Several of my in-laws are keen photographers and we have had a series of photography competitions over the past year. It has becomes obvious that what we are best at is landscape or macro wildlife shots so, to push our boundaries a bit the current theme is Autumn Portraits. We have to submit our favourite 3 pictures taken this Autumn which feature people.
I've got a few that are OK, but none that really stand out. Help me choose, please. Leave me a comment to say which is your favourite and why.
Watching fireworks

Pumpkin carving

Exploring Autumn trees

 Many thanks. I'll let you know how I get on.
While I'm here, let me share a few others I took over Autumn half term:

People shots are definitely harder, but they are much more fun to scrap, so I'll have to keep practising.

I like the two pumpkin ones.

Carving the pumpkin.
I'm getting better at people - it's landscapes I seem to struggle with.
Fabulous fireworks photos.

Fab pics! But my fav is the exploring Autumn trees. Fab backdrop against the kids climbing in the front! Take care Zo xx

It's too hard to choose! How about cropping them much tighter so you really emphasize the faces and see if that helps you make up your mind

Hi, I love the Autumn tress photo but I do think if Concentration was cropped a little tighter it would also be fab!! xx

I might be a bit late here - catching up after my computer problems! I agree, I find that photos of people are much harder to take well, but you've got some good shots here :) I think my favourite is pumpkin carving - I love that it's very seasonal, I love that it's clear what she's doing, and I love the expression on her face! As others have suggested though, you might be able to crop in a little without losing the clear sense of what's happening :)
