Why I love small flashes to shoot outdoors

I used to always use natural light outdoors, and I still often do, but now that I have started using a small flash off camera I find my images "pop" more and I am able to capture images in all types of difficult lighting situations.

The images here are both back-lit by the sun creating a nice definition, the one of her leaping was captured at a shutter speed of 250 but I metered for the background. Thus, the background exposure is correct and I can also capture the leap clearly!

Without the flash, both of these images would've been difficult to impossible!
