The HDR and the Pixel Shift shots seem to have brighter back grounds that the flash only shot with little difference between the two.
I also noticed a blue tinge distortion of the color on the wall on the left side of the picture, possibly caused by the blue indicator light on the item plugged in behind the lamp. The indicator light also seems to be much brighter and more prominent in the 2nd two photos

Thank you for your response/ critique which will aid my improvement. I apologize for not specifying the intent of my post.

... as is lighting conditions, straight out of camera with no tweaking for perfect exposure or composition. Hopefully the post provides examples for those who are considering or using the K-3II, 50mm 1.8, Shanny flash, and the use of hdr and pixel shift modes.

It's possible the indicator light may have altered how the camera processed the HDR and Pixel shift shots. If you were to retake the shots again with the same settings and the blue indicator light removed will give a better example of the effects.

hdr and flash

I'm confused. If the hdr shot also used the flash, what happened to the shadow?

The hdr shot with flash has a 13 second exposure. The flash fired at the beginning of each bracketed/hdr shot, not at the end when the shutter was closing.
