Decided to to along with some buddies the other day while they were riding. Set up my flash and took some pictures. Heres one with some PP. Any thoughts?

Not shoot there? Shoot different angle? Come back another day? Not like you're catching a plane crash or something.

I like the processing. I like that is doesn't look like there is a remote flash. Ditto for the van car thingy. I think the processing makes the guys face look like he is 90 years old.

lighting and processing do look pretty good, forgot to mention that. a second light would really make it though.

The location isn't bad. Maybe a different trick? Maybe find some kids who throw 180 bar spins on the this hip? Use the off camera flash to catch the bars in motion. And block the parking spot off next time. :)
