    First two are OK, too much like photos IMO, but the third one has no anatomical accuracy at all -- your whole chest is really messed up, so are your arm and face. I'd start over.
    Boom.

    The first painting, compared to the photo, the "reflected" part is too sharp/too much in focus. The neck in the reflection looks a little weird as well, I think you've misinterpreted the photo. Her hair covers part of her neck in the photo. The proportions in the face are also incorrect, she ends up looking a little too thin.

    The problem with the last one is that the pose isn't something you can constantly look at and draw at the same time. You probably moved slightly each time you went to check it, which results in an odd-looking composite. I would suggest finding a friend who will pose for you.

    Your works are not bad, I think you have good technique. Just spend more time sketching (from life, not photos) until you get the proportions down.

    In that first image, try softening and lightening the shadows on her face. The way you have it now she looks like she is in her 40s, in the photo she looks much younger.
