Cave entrance

I wanted to take a shot with some interesting movement in front of the statue in the centre so I set up the tripod and took a number of shots at a slow shutter speed (about 1.5secs if I am not wrong) and waited for people to pass by to create this blur effect. The important thing about taking intentionally blur shots is that you need to counteract it with something absolutely sharp in the shot, otherwise if everything were blur in the shot, it would just look like you had shaky hands! Too bad about the donation box in front -- I could remove it in Photoshop, but I thought I'd leave it there for authenticity's sake. Nikon D200 AF-S Nikkor 12-24mm f/4DX
