    I'm guessing based on the last pic that your window is on his right but higher up?
    It looks like he's too close to the source of light (window) and just the way the light hits the wall it's getting darker as you get closer to the floor.
    How big is your room? If possible I would try a 45degree with the backdrop on the opposite wall.
    the one with him looking up isn't really noticable b/c you're not focusing where the harsher light from the window is.

    awesome catchlights btw

    when you work in tight quarters, it can be hard to get the lighting just right. FWIW, I like what you have here and don't mind the changes in color in the backdrop. If it really bothers you, maybe try adding a slight vignette so that you have a uniform look around the edges.

    Best,

    The unevenness in your set is a lot subtler than the unevenness I had in my first-ever backdrop photo shoot of my daughter months ago...I think yours could easily be fixed with Paintshop/PSP. As far as why it's uneven, I agree it's just the window light being very close by and if it was like mine, the sun changed brightness here and there while I was shooting.

    For the faint gray streaks, I would try smudging (or cloning) them out or lighten them and then smudge.

    You have some great stuff here. I agree about the lighting. I've found that if you're using natural light, you've got to be careful with how the light falls on the backdrop. With the higher window, the time of day might affect how that shadow falls. It's probably because the light is coming through the window and lighting your subject, but falling short of the rest of the backdrop. One small nit-pic would be to probably heal/clone out those folds in the fabric. It would help with a lot of the color difference and distractions.

    Glad you're sharing again
