I went back to this location five times trying to capture the people in this scene. I'm very proud of the final piece, basically I just saw a shaft of natural light (just for a moment), a puff of smoke, a parting amongst all the people, and in walked a random girl in a cool red beret - click click click - now thats just pure luck, I took 6 shots in about 3seconds before this moment disappeared. If you are looking for this location it is called Center Point in Flinders Lane, in Melbourne Australia. It has a really interesting cinematic feel to it, I just added the geotag for those that have been interested in the exact location.

    You did great by increasing lighting on the white shirt and red berret. That post process makes all the difference.
