Question about Olympus Camedia C-4040 Zoom Digital Camera
Someone on the *beginners* digital camera list I'm on said she watched a digital camera how to show that stated the following: "NEVER use flash indoors and ALWAYS use flash outdoors". You read that right :o Sounds screwy to me but I decided to test it as my daughter was leaving for a wedding (she was the pianist). It was sunny and bright and about 2pm. I was stunned at how sharp and crisp the picture turned out. Maybe she's right???? Or does anyone think she looks washed out? Has anyone else heard this theory? Personally I'll continue to use flash indoors and only outdoors when I think it's needed.

For portraits when the sun is high, a fill-flash is certainly appropriate. Had you not used your flash on this, the sun would have cast long shaddows under her eyes and nose and chin, which can be very unflattering. I like the image you captured! One other option for you, when you have control over your subject and the shooting conditions, is to move your subject to a shady spot. Here the lighting is not so harsh and more of the facial features are seen. This adds character and softens the overall look of your portrait. But even in these shady situations, it's not a bad idea to take a few using the fill flash too, bracketing your shots this way will increase the likelihood that you get a "keeper."
