Second curtain synchronization

Have you tried the setting of second curtain synchronization?

This setting really makes a meaningful impact when shooting long exposure photographs with moving objects and light sources included in the frame.

The second curtain synchronization actually means that the flash that the camera controls, fires at the moment when second curtain covers the camera sensor. In other words, the flash fires at the last moment before the photograph is "done".

The difference of using first curtain synchronization for these photos below would be that the people spinning the fire balls here would be "masked" by the moving fire during the remaining exposure time.
