As this was my first shot of the day, clearly my settings were wack.

(getting the balance of flash power, shutter speed, ISO, and aperture takes a couple test shots, which I did not have time to take)

Your settings were wack? Lucky for you. I really like the way the exposure seems to highlight the in-focus portion and lets the rest blend in to a dark background. Very interesting to view.

Hey, isn't that the evil twin from Spiderman 3??

Well the loss of detail to underexposure is to much for me

I can understand the need for better exposure, but on the other hand this works great as it is, because it shows a very nice artistic mood.
