Hi Giovanni. I am envious of this photo since I had stood recently on the same spot on a cloudy day( which was nevertheless very bright) and ended up with dark shapes, unlike your beautifully detailed carvings. Excellent exposure and creative POV. A happy and healthy 2013. Klaudio.

A truly magical place and the title is apt. The beautiful Bayon so well framed and detailed as both faces well seen from this point of view to give the necessary dof, depth and space. Clarity is good and tonal contrast really add to the quality of this shot, and I love the sculptural effect. A fine photo work, TFS
All the very best in the coming New Year.

Wow .... that most wonderful composition, stunning those big heads carved in the rock, is an art that surprises with its technique and finish as far back.
Flawless execution. I love it.
I wish you a Happy New Year 2013.

Ciao caro Giovanni
I'm reading a crime novel at the moment which is set in Angkor Wat and so your photo is well-time and provides an excellent illustration for the narrative. Beautiful POV, a very unusual and inventive one which uses the angles and play of light and shade superbly. Excellent vertical frame and lovely colours.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
