Default Imitating natural light

I'm trying to mimic the natural light that I get from my window with off-camera flash. I *think* this pretty much does it. What do you think? I used a cheapie Vivitar 2800 with a Cactus V2 remote flash unit reflected off an white umbrella.

hmm.. i swear the difference was noticeable in photoshop......


anyways, the lighting does look great, just though adding a little warmth might give it a later day window-shot feel.

There is a little difference, Dustin. I'll remember that in future, though. Good point. The flash by itself is just too.... cold. Maybe a gel?
