Thanks. There weren't too many around when I took that photo. By the way, it wasn't a staged photo. I simply took the photo at an after hour's party hosted by Thunder Power (battery company) during a two-day fun fly. Two flood lights were on the floor and I used an SB800 on camera. Krause was flying the heli.

My first experiment with people. What do you think?

I like the first one.
If you could shoot at f/4 you could get a bit more background blur. That and a little flash would fill in those shadows but overall it looks "natural".

I agree but I also find the fountain a little distracting.

I think the second photo is a neat idea but would have worked better with more of the subjects face visible.

TNB, Very nice! You have me kicking myself for not using the fisheye when I was down there. That's a real fun lens.
