Flash Failure

This is what happens when you sit right next to someone that has strobes in the rafters of the stadium:

This happened several times throughout the tournament, but none at more of such a great moment than this one.

For those of you that might not know how this happens:
The left side of the photo that looks normal is the correct exposure for the setting I had at the time. The right side of the photo is actually a different photographer's flash (that was placed somewhere in the rafters of the basketball stadium). What happened here was that other photographer took a shot at almost the exact same time that I did. So the results are half the picture being correct and half of it being dramatically overexposed because of his/her flash. It sucks that another photographer's shot ruined mine, but there is nothing you can really do about it. Nothing, that is, except to sit as far away from 'em as possible.
