A little background on my current shooting style - I've been trending more towards a documentary style and shoot unstaged shots 95% of the time. I have always loved the look of film and have been post processing most of my images with VSCO film in lightroom and making manual tweaks and adjustments from there. I have just recently started to show my work more and want some general feedback; i.e. too much of this, or not enough of that, etc.

These 3 shots are all from last night and edited on my laptop (without my calibrated monitor) so the colors may be a bit off.

The post processing seems *very* far off. Very hard to evaluate images that seem so far off. I'd suggest revisiting it with color management unless there's some reason you want such a sickly green cast and such low density shadows.

The low density shadows are purposeful, but the green tint may be more than intended. I'll have to check it in a few days when I get back home to my monitor.

Huge guess here....

OK, now I get it - what film emulation are you using?

It is VSCO in lightroom with adjustments.

Here are the reworks I pulled - don't know which VSCO emulation you are applying





Straight LR WB, NR, Sharpening







Color Efex Pro Film Effect - faded

First, I love these comps
Great lighting and engaging scenes well-framed
I am not familiar with the emulation
Color balance way off as others have said
Apart from correcting the color balance these might also play well in BW or monotone

Appealing art work.

I have to go against the majority here, I really like the images posted above. You went for a VSCO film emulation and you nailed it. One could always do some tweaks here and there like desaturate a touch more and boost contrast slightly.
