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.
Mike, I completely understand you. I think moving people tend to "humanize" the picture, making it "human friendly".
However... I don't quite like the result on this one. Perhaps have "moving people" elsewhere?
I don't really know, but I don't quite like the "where" on this photo. Perhaps having "moving people" on that esplanade/porch?
PLEASE don't take my comments as an offence, PLEASE!!!
I am truly an admirer of your work and, I must say, you are inspiring me a lot to become an architechture photographer!
