Bounce problem?

Just a suggestion - I assume that you bounced the flash.

On one occasion I shot with flash in a restaurant that was in part of a converted church.  The room was long and narrow with a steeply pitched roof in a W shape.

I found that in certain parts of the room small changes to the angle of the flash could cause severe underexposure.  I assumed that this was caused by the bounced light just hitting the wrong side of the W and being deflected in the wrong direction.

Perhaps you has a similar problem?  Was there anything unusual with the roof.

I have to say that my photos were just dark and didn't show the same strange effect as your second shot.
