What metering mode were you using?

Can you please upload the images with EXIF intact - any size will do for these purposes.

With the OP's original images (having downloaded them), I can plainly see where the exposure has been biased by the metering mode used - matrix mode in all cases. The camera merely did what it was instructed to do ... Hence the very ordinary results.
The camera was told to do the wrong thing, and did it ...

I kept asking what metering mode was being used and got nowhere.

The plug on flash only has a guide number of 5 @ 100 ISO and using 1/200 s shutter speed this is only going to amplify his problems. The poster seems to think shutter speed will have no bearing, of cause it will.
