In all my postings from The Sien Reap area of Cambodia so far I avoided the most visited and photgraphed temple of the lot - Angkor Wat. Thought I'd better correct that oversight. Here then is one showing the massive scale of Angkor Wat taken from outside the quiet eastern gate with a perfect blue sky. It shows about 1/2 of the length of the outer eastern wall and not a human in sight!

The weather was excellent. Light and the colors are nice. View diagonal is effective and in depth and describes the imposing facade. The details are crisp and sharp. Excellent work. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Impressive ruins in a beautiful capture. I like the colors and the deep calm atmosphere surrounding the past.
Enjoy a fine evening.

A good overview of this great and famous temple. You were very lucky that there were no visitors to take the shot, sometimes help the composition, but other times they are a nuisance.
Excellent depth, spectacular light and good color contrast. Bravo!

yeah I know what you mean about the "most-visited" list. It's always difficult to shoot it in a unique way when every angle's already been done. But here you've done a great job, you were assited by the good sky (it doesn't seem like you had great weather for a lot of your trip) which contrasts beautifully against the sandy tones of the architecture. Beautiful details and sharpness too.
Thanks for sharing, are you waterlogged?

hai fatto un bel giro in Cambogia.
Un luogo che amerei tanto visitare un giorno.
Lunga prospettiva a vantaggio del DOF.
Ottimo lo sharp.
