I like your painting style but I don't think the black looks very good here. They kinda look unfinished, like you've just left the black basecoat there and called it a day. In these pictures, it's very hard to make out any of the black detail at all.
I think perhaps some prominent highlighting or painting the faceplate a different colour would help.
Lol, but seriously, I really like these. It may be a personal thing, but I think the black works really well for you here. I think that the light itself does all the shading you need, and while not adding detailing to the black gives it a very unnatural look, I think that adds to the alien appearance of your army. As it is, the black has a slick, biomechanical feel which is vaguely reminiscent of Alien and also evokes that early 2000's sci-fi feel, where everything was polished, smooth, and cold. (Think Matrix.) I think that look plays very well on an Eldar army.
It's a little hard to tell if the crests have any shading though. If there isn't any there, then a really quick dark wash will make that hair pop. (And a further drybrush of white will make it even better!) If you've already done the detailing on the crests and the light/camera/flash is just washing it out, then ignore this bit.
