Greetings to all,

The first 2 images I took were taken with a SB-600 0n the left side and a SB-900 on the right side. I was using my D300 at ISO 200 1/60th @ f 5.6 I was using both flashes in TTL mode and the master was my D300 set to commander mode with the built in flash set to -- with an IR shield. I tried different flash compensation settings and different aperture and shutter speeds but my results were mostly what you see in those 2 images. Could the sliding glass doors be causing this effect due to the light reflecting ? Also, When I placed both flashes directly vertical toward my white ceiling (Bounce), the images came out great. The 3rd image has that harsh shadow on the left. I had both lights at 45 deg to my model (Elmo) thinking that there wouldn't be no shadows, I guess I was wrong by what I see in my image. In this image the SB-900 is on the right side and the 600 is on the left side as you look at the image. Thanks to all for your help and tips in advance.
