lets post images that use on camera bounce flash. the rules are only that there must be only one flash involved and it must be attached directly to the hotshoe of your camera and it may be bounced in any conceivable way, but no direct flash images please.
here are mine. i used a home made gobo to stop the flash from directly lighting the subject and bounced off a white wall. i would love to get some fresh ideas from the rest of you guys out there. i have not yet tried bouncing off a reflector. if anyone has, please do share the images here. thank you.

Woa that is beautiful! what focal length and aperture is that shot? Also what sensor size?
Ya bounce flash for fill is fine. As long as its bounced and not direct and ofcourse the speedlight should be attached to the camera. Thanks for sharing.

I'm new to flash so sorry for the elementary question. What do you mean by "home-made gobo"?

Had the flash on-camera in TTL and bounced it into a white reflector I was holding over their heads. Created some nice soft light :)

a gobo ''go between'' is a term for blocking the direct lighting from your subject. I used a piece of cardboard and a rubber band. It also stops lens flare in off camera lighting.
An easy way to know if you need a gobo is to ask the person you taking the picture of, if they can see the flash head. If the answer is no then you wont get direct lighting. It just looks ssoooo much better! For off camera lighting you know when you need a gobo if you can see any of the flash heads in use. Like rim/kicker lighting. You will get lens flare if there is no gobo. Sometimes a lens hood does the trick, so that would mean your lens hood is a gobo as well.

a stofen gives too much direct lighting imo.

bounce from which direction? It seems that you probably bounced from directly behind the camera. I feel that this image could have been so much better if there was more direction to the lighting. Maybe if you bounced to the right it would have added more shape to the subject. I understand though that in wedding situations, there are not always surfaces around to bounce off of when you need them.
