Great shot mate, so much details, not a patch without an ad. Did those guys stayed steady during the time it took to take 3 shots?

Rod, thanks for the kind words.
I shot 14 bracketed sequences of 3 shots each, in this instance, to get these guys as stationary as possible. [I don’t ask anyone to “pose” but after awhile, they just do, lol]. It’s not always perfect, of course, as demonstrated by the guy on the right who is a little soft when you zoom in. Probably 10 of the brackets were basically useless.
In general, when including people in a low light bracket, after 2 or 3 brackets, I examine the individual shots in each bracket fully zoomed on my LCD. If I can get one of the shots within a bracket to show stationary people, I know I have room to work in post processing by masking in the stationary figure(s). [By the way, I never delete shots on site].
Looking forward to seeing more of your excellent work.

The processing looks perfect with all of the dense text in the scene. Great job!

Thanks Clint, I decided to reduce the saturation of some of the text to help the look. Sometimes less is more. Glad you liked it.
It’s one of those images that people either love or hate.
