    I have an idea for a shot this weekend.

    I have an idea for a shot this weekend.
    Last weekend I took a long exposure shot on the white water which I liked, but I think that it would have been more interesting with rafters in the shot.
    Of course if I do a long exposure, the rafters will be very blurry.

    I'm thinking of taking one long exposure shot like this,I have an idea for a shot this weekend.-_dsc1480-edit-2.jpg and another shot (from the same exact spot) with normal exposure when there are people rafting and then opening the two shots as layers in PS. Would just brushing in the people/rafters work while preserving the long exposure look of the water? Is that the only way it would work (brushing in the people) or is there a better way of doing it?

    I'm thinking you could do that as layers like you suggested. Optionally, you could cut the rafters from the second image and paste them into the long exposure image. Either way, you might see some artifacts (water droplets that are "frozen" in your raft rather than milky like the rest of the image, but that can be cleaned up.
