comment Why do I get horizontal grey bar with flash at shutter speeds slower than max sync speed?
I notice in the pictures that your flash is positioned midway up the umbrella shaft. You can see how the flash head is not aimed at the center of the umbrella, thus the light from it is hitting only part of the umbrella. You may be doing this on purpose, but this position does not make full use of the umbrella's ability to spread/diffuse light evenly. For softer light, move the umbrella further out so the flash is at the end of the shaft. The flash will be aimed at the center of the umbrella, and you'll see softer/more-even light as a result. Who knows, it may even solve your issue :-)

clarified that crop factor applies to more cameras than just the D3000.

CL operates in several Indian cities. They're all listed at craigslist.org/about/sites.
