|Tourists and locals crossing the river and taking selfies|
The shot above looks better with people in it. I first captured the falls without any people and it looked nice but lifeless and dull. After waiting a for some people to enter the scene the shot reflects the purpose of this place better. The park was built in the sixties for an international garden exhibition and it was meant to be explored by visitors. I love how the guy to the left is not moving that much and the girl in the upper part of the image is moving faster. For me this is more lifelike instead of taking an image of an empty place.

There are many ways to shoot with longer exposure times. It can be a mix of the best of two worlds: fine art long exposure photography and street. It is like adding people to architecture shots to make them more interesting.
Have you also experimented with this combination? Let me know in the comments.
