D600: A gazillion EV of dynamic range isn't worth squat if your camera won't focus or meter properly Locked

Judging from the pic, looks like natural light was low and your camera focussed on the background. In doing so, the flash TTL system will use the distance data from the focus system to calculate flash output and therefore increase the output of the flash to expose for what it has focussed for.

Obviously anything right in front of the camera will get blown out by the flash. It can't expose for something 1 meter away and then something 5 meters away.

Looks like it's working fine to me.
