Default Improved Blaze...

... rose, that is. The difference between these two is very subtle but then, so is the difference in lighting I shot one with a diffused bounce and the other just bounce.

Pretty rose. The differences are very subtle. I always thought all bounced light was diffused; what are the differences?

Diffusing reduces the light output even further, I would guess.

Have a great day.

Depending on the diffuser. You can also get some direct diffused light - as in this case. Take a look at a Sto-fen diffuser. The part that is above the strobe itself. It illuminates as well with some very nice light.

In the images where he used bounce flash, notice the shadows created underneath the petals in front? The use of a device that both allows some light to bounce off the ceiling and directs some forward will eliminate all shadows, like these images..
