I think it is the deliberate motion blur that drew me to the shot. At first, I thought it was fog but at a second glance I realized he just has shaky hands. However, I feel it works with the look of the picture. The ancient, timeless structure, the classic sepia tone, it all adds to the feeling of an old photograph taken of some great mystery as two civilizations begin to collide. Were the picture in sharp focus, I wouldn't have given it a second glance. It is the compilation of all the different tools that make this photograph something intriguing.
