Photographer's Note

The Great Sphinx of Giza, Egypt - the largest statue in the world carved from a rock - sits proudly in front of Khafre's pyramid.
Best shot in the morning when the sun is lighting it on the side (I discovered this by spending the whole day at the pyramids site). In PS I made various layers with dark and light exposures (like a makeshift HDR) and painted them in over the top of each other.
