My thought was - the subjects said "Make me look good" and the 
photographer did his best to do the opposite!!  Those are absolutely 
the most unflattering photos I've ever seen.  Most seem to be made 
with a very wide angle lens, exagerrating the noses and making the 
faces look very round.  The post processing is also awful with way 
too much contrast and detail enhancement with fringing around the 
head.  Most of the heads were cut off.  They certainly don't look 
powerful or good.
