Caleb Aurion was born to one of the last remaining noble families of Ascalon, decedent of the legendary Flameseeker who fought the minions of a dark god over two centuries ago. For his own safety Caleb was raised in Kryta as a member of the Queen's court living in a manor the family owned there, however Caleb's dedication to his true homeland remains strong. When he was old enough Caleb chose to take up arms and delicate himself to the same path his ancestor took even if it means battling shoulder to shoulder with the Charr who ravaged Ascalon all those years ago.

1 star deducted for double sword build... jk.
You should use another color on the boots, it's darker than the other gold parts.
I like that you are using a male warrior, since its .. rather rare I prefer it over equivalent female builds.
Also, i like that you're using unusual armor parts, even if they dont match perfectly.
To be honest, the armor is so basic, that you might get mistaken for a npc, but i guess that was kind of your objective.
Thx for not playing human female

You're right about the boots, but my dyes are pretty limited and I don't have a good tone match as of yet. I did want to keep this toon pretty basic because I enjoy the role play aspect of characters and want them to feel like a part of the world.

For a few gold (really not much) you can buy all common and uncommon colors from the tp. There are few more expensive uncommons, but you can just skip them. Then proceed to buy abyss (black, 2g) and White gold (40s) and you've got a solid foundation ^^ A solution for your boots problem is to simply use others, that process dyes like the rest of your armor :P

I spent about an hour trying to get the shots I liked so there is effort, just very little talent. If you have advice please share.

I have no charr, no asura and no male characters, and I have not really dealt with them, so I will stay away from the vote.

This is only about your screens. GW2 Forum user HnRkLnXqZ.1870 has summarized this well : If you have any more questions, I'd be happy to answer them.
My personal advice: it is important not to lose the fun of making images recording, despite all possible personal frustration.

Oops! I inserted a link and deleted a part of my text. So again xD
All your pictures show walls, paving stones (a little more variety would be nicer: a tree, entrance door, view over a wall or whatever). Your character looks too small, has dark armour and merges with cobblestones (here you need more light, zoom in on your character). You can do some emotes (cross arms, salute, threaten etc.), use skills or take up combat scenes.

To be honest I totally forgot about emotes. I also see what you mean about the paving stones. I wanted him in Ebonhawk because of the backstory but I should probably take him somewhere for another photo shoot where his armor will pop more. Thanks so much for the advice!

You can take a picture at the gates of Ebonhawk. There are big wings at the northern gates.

I corrected the dye on my boots and legs then took some new screenshots that I feel are somewhat better. Think you could take a look and let me know? Kept two of the old ones for posterity's sake.

Your screen in the upper left corner is very good. I also liked picture no.6 before. The rest is also much better.
I took the liberty of playing with your screen. That shows you what is possible. Your original screen is at the top left and others 3 are edited by me. I hope I can show you how to optimize visual effect :
