Here's a shot I made in the interests of finding the limits of E-TTL and flash compensation... The white portion of the frame is a large sheet of plastic paneling made for overhead light fixtures, molded with a "cracked ice" pattern to diffuse light widely. A 550EX was placed behind it to sweep across, and triggered by the Canon wireless unit.

The result, even with the white restricted to a small area of the frame, left the figure very dark -- the compensation here was +2 stops. A fair amount of lens flare was present, too.

As with other similar flash shots, there's not really much in the way of chromatic aberration -- the strobe light is clear and white.
