Thanks Robert and Simon.
Believe it or not, I stood on a patio chair. The ceiling is kind of low and my flash was actually touching the ceiling. with the white ceiling, I not only had to stop down to f:22, I also used hi speed sync @ 1/250sec to keep from blowing the highlights.

You're braver than I, GW. That combo really produces exceptional shots!

Thank you, Gary.
I'm not sure if I'm brave or just foolhardy!
