"RE: D100 & Sunpak Flash"

Here are the exact specs on the images above:

Mode: JPEG Fine
Resolution: 3008x2000
Lens: Nikkor 24-85 f/3.5-4.5 G EDIF
Focal Length: 80mm
Exposure Mode: Programmed Auto
Metering: Multi-Pattern
1/180 sec - f/5.6
Exposure Compensation: None
ISO 200
White Balance: Auto
AF Mode: AF-S
Tone Compensation: Auto
Flash Sync: Slow Sync
Flash Mode: New TTL
Flash Compensation: +0.7 EV
Color Mode: sRGB
Hue Adjustment: None
Sharpening: Auto
Noise Reduction: Off

These images were taken about 5 days after I got the camera, so I had little experience with it. It was mostly left to factory specs. Since then I have switched White Balance to "Cloudy -3" (Warmer), Sharpening to "Normal", Color Mode to "Adobe RGB (1998)", and Contrast Mode to "Lower Contrast."

I always shoot with +0.7 EV Flash compensation. If it looks too bright, I dial it back to +0.3 EV. Most of the time +0.7 EV is just right. I like the bright look. Some may not. I also find that it is, strangely, more important to overexpose slightly with my SB-80DX than with the built-in flash.

Here is another image taken the same day with the same settings. I find this image striking, and the flash fill just right, even with darker skin tones. What do you think?
