    # The picture was taken with an Olympus C170 - quite a simple camera.

    # The EXIF data gives a shutter speed of "200/100 second", apparently
    2 seconds.

    # The picture consists of 2 reasonably sharp images, one much brighter
    than the other.

    # In the left hand hand image the girl appears to have red-eye.

    # The right hand image appears to have no red-eye.

    The left image is the flash exposure and the other image is the rest of the
    2 second exposure, or maybe even another flash from another camera.

    It is very difficult to judge how sharp any image is when it is that size.

    I've seen this effect before at a disco, I bet there was a strobe as
    part of the effects lighting on the dance floor.
    You used a flash mode that has a long exposure after the flash fires to
    expose for the dark background and during this time the dancefloor
    strobe went off, giving the second much brighter image without red-eye.
    If you can manage to balance the brightness of the flash on your camera
    with the strobe on the dancefloor, you can get some really wierd effects
    on the dancers: sometimes you can get pictures of people with two heads
    or four arms or two of the same person in the one image.
    It just depends how much you want to muck around with your camera,
    rather than dancing and socialising.
