    What makes the photograph work is that the blur of the upper body is believable. A composite photograph is often not believable; neither are contrivances like a false body part.
    So what is your solution?

    I suspect the person in the Steinert photogaph was running, in which case there is no time when both feet are on the ground:

    I don't have any of my own work like that scanned for posting, but it would look something like this:

    Had to look that up. Now I will be on the peripheral lookout.

    However, those folks are just walking and spend too much time with both feet on the ground.

    No, the whole of the upper leg and body is missing, nothing like the image you post.

    I'd like to believe it was a single frame, but it seems the simplest explanation is a camera on tripod for several frames. On one frame there is a blurred pedestrian, whole body... but it is superimposed through a vignette as a combination print onto a blank sidewalk frame.

    But can you replicate it?

    OK then, I will...

    That's the plan... a light background and several experimental walk-by's...

    I'll composite the background with an interesting walk-by vignetted in...
