thanks guys !
Scott , no high-speed sync as my wireless controller doesn't go higher than 1/250 . i used a smaller aperture to try and get the same look as HSS.i did however order a yungnuo 622 wireless trigger last night for next time.
knkedlaya , i agree that i should have zoomed out a little but i didn't notice how tight it was through the viewfinder. i also agree that its a little on the dark side.
