Faster Passerby

I was on a business trip in Los Angeles, California and stumbled on a night time shoot of a SUV commercial. They told me I could take photos but I couldn't use a flash. I didn't have a tripod and I had to stand in the street out of the way so I was handholding at f2.3 & 1/10 second. I was surprised to find some of the shots were useable! On this one, the actors were posing and the extras were walking through. I waited to catch one in frame to demonstrate the slow shutter speed.
