    Since your great respons on my previous question on the same subject here are a few wich need improving

    Rip me apart I can handle it

    First is with SB 800 and 28 f1.4

    Second is with fill-flash

    I like them both Hans...
  3. Hans, the second one is obviously a perfect meter/fill-flash combination.

    Now, the first one is a bit blown on any vertical "flat" areas and I think it needed either a stop (or 2) down or maybe an EV tweak or better I suggest you use the magic diffuser that the SB is provided with :wink:

    Eitherway, both photos are sharp with nice colors and i like them!

  4. Either a diffuser or bounce off a nearby wall in the first - glare and shadows are a bit too much.

    The second one with fill flash technique - got it in one!

    Pretty girls - must be a pleasure to shoot.
  5. Hans,

    Other then the above comments, the colors look very flat to me. Are they still in adobeRGB by chance??

  6. Hans,

    Perhaps it's my monitor, but both have a very slight green cast. It may be that that is the cause of the flat appearance. I would expect to see more rosiness in the girl's cheeks in the first image. The fill flash on the second is perfect, hardly noticeable.

  7. I like the pose and the way you have chosen to crop and present the first image. It does need a diffuser of sime type, even a Stofen that comes with the Nikon flash would work. The second one is a fun image and one the girls will like. You have done well with the fill flash. Were you in iTTL?? I would kick up the color a little and perhaps the contrast as well. It is almost as if this image were desaturated.
