Motion Creates Emotion
Both of this photos are beautiful, however I always tell people that they have to wait for something to happen in order to bring emotion to the image. Here is a perfect example. The first image is a beautiful sunset, but when you add the human element it creates a better story, you can actually put your self in that palace making the image more powerful.
