Walking around some of the ruins can be tiring as it sometimes requires climbing from one level to another. The hot sun and the warm atmosphere even inside the complex can quickly drain ones energy. Here a young man is seen taking a break and as technology is readily at hand he must be sending some shots home or uploading to some social networking sites.
This shot was taken at Ta Prohm where massive fig and silk-cotton trees grow with its huge roots coiling around the ruins like a snake constricting its victim.

really the narrow alleys of the ruins of the Ta prohm as the other devotional centers of the country,someone can see snapshots like this one who presented us.
I like the nice scene with the resting man to try to get a deep breath to continue his tour in the place.

That's a very meaningful and certainly beautiful picture!
Highlights here are the chosen pov, composition and management of light! Colors also pleased me! I think it could have more sharpness, but the way it is, a more painting-like photograph, it also pleases me!
TFS - congrats,

Great composition with superb play light, colours and shadows. The sitting boy adds a lot of life to this very beautiful scenery. Very well seen and done
