Thanks again everyone SO much! In answer to Marty's question....this was a long hall. I stood on one side and shot at least 10 frames of people reflecting on an opposite wall that appeared to be glass with an abstract design behind it. I kept trying to turn the flash off, so got some of both and thought the flashed images were more interesting. Time was of the essence as my family waited impatiently in the wings...I could have shot for hours, since each group of people were so interesting!
