Default Canon 430 EX 11 with my G 12...blue, blue, blue Pictures ?

I just got my 430 EX 11 flash for my relatively new G12 camera.

The first few pix I took with the 430 EX 11 were fabulous...perfect lighting, etc.

Then I started to push buttons...now every picture I take is blue...portraits look like family members of Mr. Freeze.....blue, blue, blue.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks.

Did you changed the white balance on the camera?

I have done this myself, when I was using manually set tungsten WB, then switched to using flash without resetting the WB. Fortunately, it isn't too tough to post-process back to normal looking.
