    I feel like a lot of them suck, technically. Lets ignore the contextual/emotional success of the shots for a min.

    I can see blatantly obvious mistakes where the shutter was too slow on some.

    One thing i was concerned about was shooting at 3200 ISO at F8 around 1/80 would give me soft images. If i lowered the ISO, i'd have to increase the fstop, but i didnt want to mess with the DoF, then having to go even slower on the shutter.
     
  2. don't shoot raw, it was the worst advice i've had so far...

    those do not look like club photos. Most club photos are close up shots of girls and groups. The larger club shots aren't to get clear details in faces and don't usually require much from your flash. Your shots suck because they look very point and shoot.

    Generally, you don't want to shoot entire crowds--most pictures don't turn out well.

    Get more candids of people and you'll have improved significantly over what you're currently doing.
