There is a statue in the taller fountain. Periodically they switch height to expose either or both. There were people walking and biking by. The long exposure erased them, sweet. But I was force to frame the fountain more to the left because of some people sitting where I'd rather have composed and they would have been recorded since they were not moving.

Fuji 100 Acros, Rodinal 1+100 developer, ND2.7 + Pentax #56 (O2) orange filter, Pentax Spotmeter V, 45 second exposure

Well done. It works well in BW. Looks surreal, like an Infrared shot.

Love what you did! I have tried a couple times to get something out of the fountain but didn't like the outcome at all.
I understand about wanting to frame more to the left and that was the first thing I thought when I seen the photo, but then I read the explaination.
