The Clean Up

In the distance you can see people on the hill near the abutment looking at the wreck. Believe it or not, these are not real people, but an old PhotoShop style technique. Photographers used a technique in the darkroom called "burning," where they would use a stencil with people cutouts and light to overexpose areas of the picture to make the photo more interesting to look at.
