> as I am composing the picture my over/under exposure (via viewfinder) shows over exposed before I take the picture

That is showing you the ambient exposure, the one that does not include the flash. In this case you appear to have gotten completely lucky, since the exposure shown in the screen snap shows at least two stops underexposure. Yes, the exposures you posted above are pretty close - they are a bit underexposed to my taste, but not much. That means that the flash gave you almost but not quite enough to compensate for the under exposure of the ambient.

Edit: I see that you were in TTL, not manual, on the flash. That's why the exposure is very close - the flash metered the scene, discovered that the ambient was two stops underexposed (or whatever it was) and it set the flash to light the scene appropriately. I think it was a little short, but not much.
