Thanks Mark, the flash didn't fire in manual mode. Probably you are right. But as said earlier, on some occassions, even after manually popping out the flash also, the results are dark photos. Will try few other setting this time and see how I go...Thanks again.

In your first post you referred to children performing on stage.  That's quite different from the photo you posted.  The light from the flash will fall off very quickly.  I can't remember exactly but I think the range of the flash on the 60D is only about 12 or 13 meters; okay for still life, not okay for people on a stage unless they're at the front of the stage and you're in the first row.

Cheers,
Peter
