All the three shots uploaded by you are portraits....and when doing a portrait, there is very little help a photographer gets from the other aspect of the composition, I mean other than object [in our case the person whose portrait has been depicted should be in the prime focus]. In all the three portraits you have chosen "lomo Wall" as a background and even two of them you have captioned as "Lomo Wall" In my opinion while doing portrait photography photographer's main focus should be the object itself and elucidating your work in that scenario, lomo wall rather than adding something to the composition, has become a distracting factor. The other thing is that though you have applied vignette, nevertheless, the round shadow at the bottom line should have been avoided by cropping the same. My best wishes are always with you.......good luck...:-))
"I know the client said clouds, but what if you showed them a starry night sky which would be less distracting than bright fluffy white clouds and I agree with losing the halo and toning down those awfully bright cheeks and nose, so the eyes come out…"
