    Somebody pointed out to me they look like load of feathered recruits being drilled by the drill sergeant.

    That has to be one of the best that I have seen. If I could produce an image of that quality, i would be over the moon.

    Thanks for that Paul, I never even considered the concept of coloured lights. Any advice on lens flare?

    Ian, Try this.

    Take the shot, process and sharpen.

    Duplicate a layer. Then Filter > Other > High Pass and set the pixel count to 4.6 or thereabouts and click OK. From the layers panel, select overlay.

    The image will be grossly over-sharpened. Select Image > Adjustments > invert. This will alter the over-sharpening and soften the image. Adjust the opacity to create the softness you want.

    Create a mask and paint out the softening on the eyes, nose and mouth - again use the opacity of the paintbrush to suit.

    Then shadows and highlights.
