These are night shots taken outside a local coffee hangout with an Olympus legacy 50mm f 1.2 lens at 1.2. Which is better?

Personally............​...no on HDR. Too strong on the HDR, especially as it is a tad blurry. The second is better but still a bit too blurry for me. Handheld?


Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Could be shallow DOF leading to many areas being a bit OOF. IMHO, they both look over-processed. I'd pick the second, but tone down the adjustment mask on the boxer and maybe some more contrast all over.

Yep, handheld. Thanks for the critique.

I never knew such a sport existed. How interesting! Thanks.

I get your point on the Boxer in #2. It was very dark and I was surprised that I could get such a shot at all. Thanks for the critique.
