Shot 30 minutes before sunset. It was really busy and therefore very difficult to get a clear shot. I had to get the tripod as high as possible on a sloping bank and just managed to fire away a few shots that I was happy with.
Not much happening with the sky, so the reflection was the best composition available with the fading light. Shot using nikkor 35-70 f2.8 at 35mm using a remote release.
I have only recently started photography (Nov 06), so this was the first opportunity to try abroad and technically my most competent photo although not my favourite as, for me, the people are the 'wonder', not the temples.
The Cambodian people are amongst the most friendly I have encountered. They are trying really hard to improve their country, any help we can give seems to be appreciated.

I liked the compo of angkor wat but it would be better if you took this picture in sunset time with the orange lights fallen on the temple giving a support to the impact of the picture. Unfortunatelly the monk on the entrance door is too far.
