I tried out my power back today. I had two strobes on two soft boxes connected to it. Let me know what you all think!

i think you need to match the ambient exposure better to balance the flash

Shutter speed and aperture set the ambient exposure. Aperture sets the strobe exposure. So you could have lightened the ambient by decressing the shutter speed. If that would result in too low a SS you'd need to increase the ISO or use a wider aperture and then dial down the strobe power so the foreground exposure stayed the same.

Use your R, G, and B histograms. From the light areas on the face it looks as if the red channel is clipping

Lets call that an "eye" in the tree! I prefer the Black & White to the color portrait.
