Fujifilm FinePix X100 High-Speed Flash Sync
One of the great features of a lens shutter camera like the X100 is the high-speed flash sync capability. In both these shots I was about to use a shutter speed not normally associated with a built-in flash. I shot the Empire State Building shot at 1/2000th at F/4. The main issue was the extreme shade we were in while wanting to show visiting family the Empire State Building behind them. Any less exposure and the sky would have been washed out. Then the cherry blossoms I shot at 1/1000th at F/13 to keep the blue sky with the backlit flowers. A great way to get the effect you like.
