    Does seem like #1 and #2 is mixed up.

    Thanks for doing this.
    To my untrained eye, only #2 (which I suspect is naked direct flash) is certainly the worst.
    The next would be the other types of direct flash
    All the bounce methods look better with the ceiling bounce (#1) throwing the eye sockets in shadow so its probably the worst of the bounce methods.

    in an enclosed scenario such as in a room etc. u shud bounce n use a white cardboard to throw some light back onto the main subject.

    different scenario requires different usage of the flashgun.

    in extremely dark situation, it might be best jus to direct flash with/without a diffuser




    but then again, depends on what kind of effect one is looking at.

    think one needs to be flexible n adjust accordingly to the situation.

    You should make the background totally black and use side light to project on this face ... I think the effect will look better
