Man I love the look and tint of film! First of all I'd ditch the time stamp.
Second, the compositions simply aren't interesting. What are we looking at? #1 looks like you thought about it the most, but the other two are random snapshots to me. Try to find interesting things and fit them in the frame!
Third, the Dutch angle isn't helping in #1 and #2. It's a technique that only works in certain situations. In your case I think it's just a major distraction.
And last, consider ditching the on/camera flash, buy a tripod and do lightpainting instead. Only when you´ve got time enough on your hands.
Keep it up! I'd love to see more film shots on here.
I agree with this for the most part, though the dutch angle on #1 works for me for some reason - I feel that getting a level shot would have made that image look significantly less interesting. The window frame for me gives the image a sort of imperfect bisection that I find interesting.
I also suggest trying a higher exposure without the flash, but don't necessarily think you should ditch it outright. There's a subjective aesthetic choice to be made, but if you do end up using it, make sure you've experimented with the exposure so that the overexposure is kept to a minimum. As for lightpainting...meh. I was never a fan, as for me it takes away from the natural untouched feel of the surrounding environment. Again, however, that is totally up to you and your tastes.
The last two are really dying for composition to the point where it looks like you just blind-fired the camera. Work on your framing (rule of thirds, watch your corners, learn the elements of design, etc.) and I think you'd have a much more impressive product.
