Thanks for all your comments and to Pete for the HC and Lillian for her UA, all very much appreciated.

The seats in the circle are still there so used the arc of the seats to lead you to model.
Three flashes in this shot:
Main light in front of the model, one behind her to give some rim lighting
and one by the camera to lift the seat out of the dark

Thanks for looking
Regards Richard
