    since u so in need of my advice...

    go do a reshoot, seriously... these shots are not even worth posting... the problem lies with your understanding of the system... try using P mode & see if you can get anything... then redo with Aperture, den Manual...

    Looks like a high ISO shot from a consumer cam where the cam has really misjudged the settings. Image looks like it's been through noise ninja or some other noise reduction software.

    Problems(some are already listed) --> Underexposed, handshake, settings were not controlled and rectified on the spot. Not using flash can give you a more natural result, but that does not mean you leave the flash off permanently in all situations. If that was the case, photogs. wouldn't spend 600++ on an external flash. In this case, flash would definitely have worked better, giving you a higher shutter speed and hence a smaller likelihood of blurred photos. Your photos turned out this way because the cam was likely using evaluative metering and the bright BG threw the meter completely off. If your camera has a center evaluative or a spot meter use that and meter on the face if you don't want to use a flash to fill in the subjects. Your hands look terribly shaky; it might be worthwhile to spend some $ on either a model with image stabilisation or a monopod/tripod.
    WB is also off, resulting in that greenish cast. Try using custom white balance when the preset WB settings do not work.

    The photos look terrible to be perfectly honest, I wonder why you didn't delete them on the spot. PS will not save these, for certain.

    Piece of advise, always note down your settings then you can learn what you have done wrong.

    Settings as in shutter spd & aperture. Even when set to P mode the slr still gives these 2 readouts. That's what you got to note down.

    well, you don't learn till you've failed as the saying goes.

    If your slr has an internal flash then pop it the next time you take shots in such poorly lit locations. You need more light than what the fluoros in changi airport give, anyway it is better to overexpose negs than underexpose. If not, consider purchasing a cheap flash unit compatible to your slr.

    If all this is too much trouble then use a compact digicam instead.

    well do consider carefully as dslr system is an expensive upfront cost where you pay before you shoot as opposed to film which you only pay after you shoot. How many rolls of film would one have to go through before reaching the cost of a dslr system? Heh... Nothing more to add, no wish to engage in dslr vs slr battle here.

    cheers.

    i have no idea why you didnt use your flash. you should have just metered of the surroundings with your TTL and find that the cams P mode is giving you waaay slow shutter speeds....

    from 1 look can tell is way way underexposed, but if you using P mode it shouldn't underexposed until like that.

    Are you using expired film as well?
