This is so much better, Bob.
Others may like to look at the original in your portfolio.
The bikers were very co-operative in posing for you and your group.
You say, "there were about 8 of us sharing a remote wireless trigger. So we all had to move fast to give the next person a chance to shoot", and therefore, under the circumstances, I think you did well although, as I said before, a little more of the bikes in the frame would have been good - they look really interesting.
Also, as said before, I like the differing expressions of the people, especially the boy on the left who is obviously pleased to pose for you, whilst the others are more relaxed. The old lady with the shopping basket on her bike is an intriguing member of the biker group.
Something different, well done.

I like this.
I would suggest sorting out the horizontal distortion (the bricks in the wall are not level) caused by standing a little too far to the right of the centre of the shot; and perhaps close out the piece of bike wheel bottom left. Tone down the highlights on the womans T shirt, and brighten the guy on the right, - hes a little less bright than the others. Loaded mod to show what I mean. The lens correction was done in Photoshop CS6 using the lens correction tool.
Its hard to think this is a bunch of people taken from the street, they look so professionally posed!
I think we all got lucky. The instructor chased down the bikers right after lunch. They all agreed to the photo shoot. I was like the 4th or 5th person in line to use the remote trigger so by that time they were getting used to having photographer talk to them. It was very crazy. I was shooting very fast to capture what I could trying different settings. Others were shooting at will with their personal flash too.
I have Adobe CS4 and Lightroom 2. I will play with lens correction suggestion and brightness adjustments on the subjects. I do appreciate your feedback. I have another photo from that same lighting class that I would your thoughts.
I havn't yet looked at the original, but this is fine technically. What jars for me is that they are all looking in a different direction = no two are looking at the same thing. Needs eye contact for me.
