Default Using flash at sunset

Just got a new flash unit and wanted to try it out on a common scene I encounter at the beach at sunset. Without flash, gulls in the foreground are shown in silhouette. The pop-up flash on my Sony a6500 wasn't high enough to avoid creating a shadow from my WA lens with hood. The new external flash did what I was hoping for. What do you think? NOTE this first one is without flash...for comparison.

This shot shows the effect of the external flash.

From black to white! The flash can tremendously add to your photo's (there's a word I don't think I've ever used.) It appears that it also improves the metering of your ambient light. The sky looks better in the flash pic.

Nice job Walter now you've got a whole new avenue to travel. Enjoy.

Which light did you get?

You've got to be happy with that result Walter.

Very nice improvement with the flash.

I have the Sony HVL-F32M External Flash, and I recently purchased the Vello FreeWave Fusion Basic 2.4 GHz Wireless Trigger System for Sony Multi Interface Shoe for my Sony A7. It was on sale for $27 and it works. I have yet to take it out on my backpacking trip, but hopefully will do so soon. I like to get the flash off of the camera for some of my flower pictures, and definitely for my lit tent shots around mt hood.
