Long exposure and timelapse are two different things. I'm not saying that the image was taken with a quick exposure, just correcting people on the common mistake that long exposures are called time lapsethat's definitely a time lapse photo, i take them all the time. Look at the movement depicted in the head lights and tail lights of the cars, that image was not captured in single moment.
Very good example for those who are still confused about what a time lapse is.this is a long exposure.
20 second exposure(shutter opened for 20 seconds and then closed)
this is a timelapse picture, my friend took more than 500 pictures over the span of 3 hours and overlayed them in Photoshop.
