Thank you, sds, LTZ470

Below are 5 of the several shots I took on the corner of Broadway and 35th. As sometimes happens in my NYC HDRs, the woman wasn't there when I started and walked into my frame. You can see her walking toward the center in the first frame.











She then stayed there oblivious to the goings on around her which resulted into this HDR. Moving people were ghosted to near invisibility:



I then cleaned out her cane and head which came out ghosted because of her movements with cutouts from a single frame. I also introduced motion blur to the man to the right of the lamppost because he came out well-defined and replaced the sky with one from a single frame. The rest are Topaz Adjust and Photoshop.

I hope this helps. I often just plant my tripod away from foot traffic and hope someone strays into my scene. I imagine bird shooters probably do the same.
