The above link leads to a picture that i took with a very bright flash, under a normal setting.
This second link leads to the same picture that was taken with a brighter flash, under the fireworks setting on my camera. This setting is meant to take pictures of anything that is so bright that it goes out of focus or whites out the picture when it comes out on the camera. I tried to simulate the same effect that a firework would have by turning the flash on my friend's camera to its highest setting and then taking a picture while the bright flash illuminated the picture. This setting on my camera dims the picture down so that you can actually make out the scene rather than just seeing a whited out picture. To test this out, i even went so far as to dim the flash somewhat on the first picture. With the second picture, I turned the flash all the way up that I could see the full potential of this setting in comparison.
