The Jemaa-al-Fna is the central square in Marrakech, Morocco—used by locals and tourists alike. It’s a Unesco World Heritage site, and has been a symbol of the city of Marrakech for centuries.

To make the image shown here, I paid for access to a “Panoramique Balconey,” and shot three exposures on a tripod. Shutter speeds ranged from one second to 15 seconds, with the exposures combined in Photoshop.
