Brilliant Sohrab! I was looking at your photos for the first time in an age and this jumped right out at me. I had already decided it was one of my favorites before I saw it was scanned from a contact sheet! After that I simply love it more because it reminds me of when I was seeing the world and submitting scans from contact sheets to the critical eyes of the elder members. Your efforts supercede mine very much though! The process you have used here captures the essence of the picture perfectly. Wonderful

Yes odd, like it always has and will. What I'm getting at is that you are really not showing us anything in this image. It is not even a re-presentation of soemthing familiar that shows it to me in a new way. I beleive these are both very important things to keep in your mind whilst making photographs.

This is indeed a beautiful scene, however I feel that it could have been better with a more dramatic sky. Also it looks to me that the colours are a little bleached, was this taken during the middle of the day? I think it was because of the shadow areas on and around the tree. A different time of day could have added more substance and vitality to the image. Imagine a long shadow of the tree reaching out towards the viewfinder, for example. It's interesting to note your use of traditional filters with your high-tech digital camera. Most people I know are prefering to solely use PS to post-process. I must say that I find the colors in your picture, as well as looking slightly bleached to me, also seem a litle unatural (particularly the water). I don't think this is because of the polarizer, but maybe some post-process work you may have done.[+]

Ok, so it's a tower with a little bull on top. Is this significant somehow? A little more info in your note would be great to help us understand why you want to share this picture. The picture itself is lacking any kind of interest for me, however it's not the a long way from the worst I've seen on this site. Technically the contast is too high (your highlights bleached, and your shadows have no detail). What method did you use to import this image onto your computer? It looks like this picture was taken during the middle of the day, when the suns light is at it's harshest. During this time of day it is better to photograph subjects that are indoors, or that are totally in the shade. I hope that this has been helpful :)

C'est une image merveilleuse. Le grain et vous modifient la tonalité ont capturé dans le ciel sont superbe. Mais pourquoi laissez la saleté dans l'image ? Est-ce que c'est intentionnel ? Pour moi, ceci abîme l'image.[comment]

Welcome to TrekEarth Raymond.
I like your image very much, there is alot of empty space on the left, but your composition balances this very well. I look forward to seeing more pictures from cambodia!
I too have made a workshop. Mine focuses on the right hand side of the frame and converts it to BW, I hope you like it!
