    You can see the reflection in the lower part of the gas tank of a 12x16" softbox on one flash. The flashes are 80-100 GN units and don't have enough power to work with larger softboxes or translucent...

    Ulophot may have point, depending upon what the poster's intent was. I guess I'd print it more like this, consistent with the striking first image.
