A more natural expression here. A more semi-candid nature, which is more to be expected in this situation. On-camera flash is on-camera flash.
You can do very good mono conversions, as these have a full range of tomes and there is decent contrast.
Your exposure looks fine here, and you've got good detail. The bright lamps are always going to overexpose as they are the light sources, and that's acceptable on something like this.
It's difficult to know what the subject is here.
I like the viewpoint and the many different angles created by the escalators and floor levels.
I'll start with V1. A strong bold composition. Even numbers are not supposed to be as easy to arrange as odd numbers, but here it looks good. You have diagonals inthe arrangement of cup, people and even their arms. It would be hard to choreograph in normal circumstances let alone capture as a candid.
This is the problem with such shoots, everyone fighting for position and getting the same uninvolving shot. No chance to properly experiment with lighting and posing. I think you've discovered that!
I prefer V1, more balanced and space for the subjet to breathe. Not that I dislike V2.
