Hey Mike, love your work, follow you on Flickr, etc... Why do you include blurred shots of people in your final result? I have see you do this with some of your other final images including indoor and outdoor shots. Just curious if it's something that the client wanted or that you thought the shot needed?
Just been doing it a little more lately. I can include them or get rid of them with the click of a button, they're just a layer in photoshop - but the thing is - I think it would look a little weird if I had a movie theatre completely devoid of people, you know? Like, here's a place that people are supposed to come and have a good time, yet it's completely free of people. A house exterior I can understand there not being people, though. And architecture is all about human interaction with the piece, so I figure I'd try it out. I have only done it a couple times but in this case, I also think the people help to break up the expanse of cement in front of the camera and add some motion and interest to an otherwise expansive shot.
I'm not really sure what I think of it either - I think it works in this shot, but like I said it's something I don't have much experience with, so I'm totally open to others' feelings on it.
