I do preffer the after, less flat :)

Have you tried pushing up the fill slider to bring some details on the dark areas? Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't (only brings noise/banding, rant: damn Canon sensors and their low dynamic range), but wouldn't hurt a try.

Yeah.... I've noticed that banding.... makes me CRAZY! I try to shoot with 100 ISO whenever possible...... that seems to keep it at a minimum. Will try the fill slider and see.

I only have the digital Canon camera because it was a most lovely gift from me mum ;) Before that I was a slave to 35mm or Point-and-shoot digital...... but I worked that as best as I could also ;)

I've got one graduated..... and 3 to go! Then I might have money for things like 100mm macro lenses, big ole zoom lenses, a 85mm 1.2 lens, a good tripod lol, lots of things on my wish list ;) Plus once kids start getting out on their own....I'll have time hopefully to travel a bit to places I've always wanted to take my camera to.... like the Redwood forests, and someday Ireland! :D

you may try replacing that top dish with a "tunnel" made of cardboard covered (inside) with aluminium foil. that way the flash light goes directly to your front diffuser.

I find iso100 too low to capture environment light.
