    You've used a shutter speed which had exceeded the flash sync speed of your camera.

    Your flash caused an shadow cast by some object? Sorry just a wild guess... Better take another photo at another location with similar settings.

    It cannot be the flash sync speed, since it is 1/100 which is well within limits.

    The other thing I can think of is that your flash triggers are a little slow. The delay caused the flash to fire slightly later than it is supposed to, catching the shadow from the shutter curtain.

    What triggers are you using?

    Right, from the exif data it's not the sync speed problem.

    Also doesn't seems like a shutter curtain issue as the shadow is not a straight line.

    sticky mirror is a possibility.

    have tried taking a photo at a different location? does it appear in all the shots? at certain speeds?
