Default Metz Ring Light

I purchased a Metz Mecablitz 15 MS-1 Digital Ring Macro Flash.
Here is my first attempt with an African Violet.
Still learning what it can do.
Sony A55 - Sigma 105mm macro.
Hand held - shot in RAW then "developed" to JPG.

So far it seems very easy to setup and use with the A55.

I'm still not sure exactly all it does but so far it seems to do what I'm after. I'll know more when I can take more pictures. I am open for advice on how to best use a ring flash.

So far I'm very pleased with the results. I'm still figuring out what the best aperture setting should be. It seems to stay pretty sharp up to f22.
