    Thanks for all the advise. I will keep trying. Rest a sure I will only post my flash images when I think I got it right. LOL That doesn't mean they will be right to all the wolves waiting to attack. I need a site with people that don't know a good image when they see it.LOL

    Frank, thats not what the intention is. we're all here to try and help eachother. we should all post images whether they work out "right" or not. the frustrating thing for me though is that you specifically asked a couple of times how to improve your flash photos, we take the time to try and help but then you ignore it and are making the same misakes over and over and over again.

    this is not so much a quality of the image itself, more a comment on the technique used to acquire the image. the image is really a matter of personal taste but the technique you're using is flawed. it kind of gets to a point i think, shit, what was the point of taking all that time to explain it if you're just going to ignore it ?

    its irrelevant whether you use a flash gun or a PUF, the technique in balancing flash light is identical. the results will of course be better wit ha strobe, but the technique does not change at all.

    I'd also recommend looking into monitor calibration. I'm seeing consistent color/contrast problems with the majority of your images.

    Not to mention the first photo is out of focus.

    Just constructive criticism

    Rooz I do appreciate the help. I try to remember everything but when the time comes I forget what settings and unfortunately only remember the same settings that aren't working. I was only replying to Don's comments. When I seen the images on the camera that didn't look that bad. I saw how bad they were once I got home. I didn't do much PS work on them just a curves and crop. I keep posting my images so I can learn. As you can probably see from my first images I have learned alot and still have a lot to learn. I don't have a problem with the criticism of my shots. If I did I would not post them. Sorry I I made you feel like you were wasting your time with your advice. That is not the case I do read ant try to correct my mistakes. I do want to improve my shots.
    Thanks for taking the time to look and help. I will try harder to remember what I was told.

    Frank,

    I found a kind of cool thread idea that addresses a Gary Fong "Puffer" (<- click on this), which is a diffuser mask for the "pop-up" flash. It discusses how it can be cleverly adapted to the SONY hot-shoe and may solve a number of these "burning" flash issues you are dealing with.

    I know Rooz would probably be a little happier. LOL

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
