Timeless Buddha statue watching people on boardwalk

This photograph was taken in the northern German town called Timmendorfer Strand. It shows the statue of a sitting Buddha watching people (pedestrians, a jogger and some bikers) passing by on the boardwalk.
After some test shots I used an exposure time of 1/10 sec, which was long enough to generate some significant motion blur on the moving people while still leaving them recognizable as persons. The correct aperture for this rather long exposure time under these daylight conditions was f/25. To avoid blur on everything else but the moving persons, a tripod was used.
