Do remember the Hasora was in the shade. It appeared more colourful when it ventured into the sun light. The flattening of the eye may be due to the reflection from the flash. I preferred to shoot without flash when I was doing slides, but it is more difficult to get good shot unless the illumination from the sun is uniform. Any harsh shadows makes for a contrasty pix, so a small filled-in flash is helpful.

Another thing to note is the direction of the light source. For the first photo the light is coming from the top, while for 2 & 3, the light source (flash) is in shining almost directly towards the plane parallel to the 'film' thus making the eyes looks flat.

KC, next time we can use off camera slave flash and position the flash farther away from the camera.

Okay will do ...
:D :D :D

Re #4, I used a mounted flash GN 25 -1EV. You can see the reflection of the flash in the butt's eye in the last 3 pixs. You don't get this in
the true butts.
