I avoid using flash at all costs. The only flash I have is the built in speedlight on my D5000. Even with -3.0 flash compensation my pictures are completely washed out of any detail due to flash brightness. Using LR3 I was not able to restore any detail in areas that have been completely washed out from the flash. Pleas help me use my built in speedlight to take good pictures!!!! These are out of the camera pictures processed from RAW to JPEG then uploaded to photobucket.
