    the lighting is harsh as hell and overpowering
    the gut in #2 scares me
    #3 is pelfed
    the acne in #4 looks contagious

    in my opinion, bare, direct flashes don't look good coming from anywhere but on axis or as kickers / rim lights. Bouncing is one thing, putting the flash on a stick and aiming it at things is another. Your lighting ratio is about infinity/1

    Agreed. Try using less flash and dragging the shutter a bit for more ambient light? You may need to gel the flash to match the color temp of ambient at night though.

    shutter speed is too high on the 3rd pic..need more ambient to compensate for the blown flash...it should've been around 1/30 or lower..
