This girl was wandering around the temple of Preah Khan all on her own, she looked so sad.
Preah Khan was built in the late 12th century by king Jayavarman VII, it was one of his largest projects and was much more than just a temple. With over 1000 teachers it appears to have been a Buddhist university as well as a considerable city.

Hi Wanda, beautiful portrait of the young girl, with good quality and a good composition with the old stone ruins around and the strong light on the background.

A very good portrait,your model is so prety..good contrast between her youth and the old walls.The light in background is too strong and a little bit disturbing for me
All the best

Her looks are deep, sensitive.
Thank you for this capture.

Beautiful catch Wanda. The color of her shirt orks so well in this stone environment, bringing intense colour in a mostly grey world.

good portrait and well used local sharpness. The window in the back creates depth.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Great portrait. The girl is very photogenic, her meditative expression and expressive look is a great part of the charm of the image, the other one being the colours and the well chosen compo.

An amazing portrait with good compo.
The pink dress and the strong light on the background are very well captured; she has a natural and lovely glance.
See you soon...

Nice temple portrait, another beautiful Cambodian kid. Good use of the shallow DOF. Its a good thing she isn't looking directly at you.
With Greetings from India

When I look at this picture the word 'survivor' comes to mind. Her face is full of expression. Much sadness. A really good portrait!
