Slightly off
Lens: 18-55mm Camera: K-x ISO: 1600 Shutter Speed: 1/20s Aperture: F5.6 

Can't quite put me finger on what's off with this pic. It just seems as if the crispness has fallen just short of being right. This was also done with the onboard flash.

It looks pretty good for ISO 1600. The light is too harsh, though. You may want to get either a diffusor for your hotshoe flash or a flash for your kx. It will make a huge difference.

I believe the flash intensity can be dialed down with the e-dial on the K-x. Maybe one step or so will back off the shadows a bit............(?)

Dialing down a bit will help, but something to soften and spread the light is best. And a light source further away from the lens will help much more.

as they said, but also notice the background and scene. It's very cluttered and distracting, especially the window frame coming out of the head on the right and the plant in the middle.

Of course I dont see much you could do with that angle, except lay on your stomach for a low angle, but then your subjects laugh histerically
