This is an interior shot of the central temple at Prasat Kravan, one of the ancient Khmer temples of Angkor. I had a lot of trouble with this as the area above the Vishnu carving was almost completly blown out and the rest of the image was so dark that you could not see what the picture was of. I tried to balance the highlights and shadows to make the image more viewable, but I know that it still has some problems.

This is one of the images where correcting the "technical" issues might neuter the image's effectiveness .. the way the light opens up onto the statue is tremendous .. and very evocative with the whole concept of Vishnu.

Still is nice I saw since the beginig the overexpose in the top and the dark in the bottom but this is normal because the ligth came from the top, so this is very commun, somoe times to balnce this I desatured so B&W give more balance tot he pic and I just balance the brigh, color and other things.
I like this picture is very misitc and wonderful, in fct in this oment I'm lisening music from Asia, so this picture is perfect.
Take care and have a good day
