Long shutter speeds. When flash is your main light put the camera in M mode, and set the shutter speed to minimise fuzzies but get the ambient you want into the image. Also higher ISOs can be better, to increase background light (good) and reduce flash power (good), and modern DSLRs are great up to ISO3200.

I don't see what you're referring to, possibly because of the small size of the image. If you could post the pic at a larger size and point out what you're seeing, it would help.

The new image is still rather small, but it looks out of focus to me.

1/15" @ F9 isn't helping! Kick your shutter up to at least 1/60" The flash in E-TTL mode will do the rest. 18mm at that shutter speed should be doable hand held, but it looks like the camera completely missed AF along with camera shake.

Shutter speed is a definite problem but I don't see a single thing in focus in that image. You are suffering from a double whammy - shutter too slow and focus wandering around somewhere other than on the image.:D
