If you're going to the trouble of using fill flash (whose presence IS obvious), then you might as well have attempted to take the shot without blowing out the sky behind. The first shot is indeed awkwardly exposed, both overall and on the face. You may not have had a bounce opportunity, but a diffuser would have helped a great deal. Your shutter speed of 1/50 sec. for that shot was clearly too long to provide a proper balance between the ambient lighting and the flash.

To my eyes, the first photo is well exposed. Both overall and on the face. Since I made more than one shot, and set the ambient and the flash with compensations carefully until I got the result I liked and this is it. The ambient is well exposed even if the sky is bright on that part. The overall brightness of the background equals with what I saw there with my own eyes. Yes, I could have underexposed to avoid highlights burnout, however, I don't think they are burned out (I can't check now), so you can make them less bright, if it matches more to your taste, but as it is now is fine for me!

What can I possibly say?
