A great set of images, a hard choice to decide which one I like the most but I think V2 edges it for me.

Too much power on the flash, hence all the white reflections and the image looking rather flat, use the manual setting rather the the TTL oh and another trick I regularly is to wrap the flash tubes with tissue paper so as to diffuse the power somewhat.

You might also when processing the RAW image change the setting to daylight or adjust normally, this will give you much more natural colours rather than the over-saturated and warm look the flash has given the image here.

Just an idea of course, but IMHO I'm sure you this image would been much more improved had you tried these methods........Regards
