I just noticed your shot got picked for the Nat Geo Daily Dozen - congratulations!

Not quite.  I didn't have a ball adapter for the cold shoe, only a YS style adapter like this one, so no clamp and the strobe was directly on top of the port, pointed more or less straight ahead.

Anyway, glad you liked the results!

Is it safe?  Maybe not 100%.  But where I live, it's either buy on line, wait for a trip out of the country, or do without.  I've had only good experiences buying from Wetpixellers, and all of my transactions have involved international shipping.  You can filter opportunities by judging the evidence about the seller and communicating thoroughly.  So I'll keep dong it.

Nice shot - good composition and capture of ambient light top to bottom.  

 

I'd probably play around with the white balance a little more.  It looks too cool (too far to the blue end of the spectrum) to me.  Maybe also bump the contrast just a bit and see if you can deepen the shadows to make the school pop out against the background at the bottom.  

 

Otherwise, well done!

That's a very good reason!  Good luck then
