Fourth of a series dedicated to Angkor people.
Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. Stretching over some 400 sq. km, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. These include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

I always like those type of picture, with "colored" people on foreground and B&W like background.
Compo is very good in this one, I like it.

I like this picture, the monk looks very friendly.
Very good focus point, good sharpness.
Maybe the DOF is a little bit too big.
Beautiful touch of color !

What a light reflection on his head, pleasant to sea. I think a tighter crop is a possibility here. Quality is perfect, good DOF to make you target lose from the background and reduced contrast on the whole.

Good morning, Oscar.
You have picked the best light direction on the monk, and on the dark background as well. Your subject really popped out. I also admire the friendly smile and look from him.

La netteté et les couleurs vives du 1er plan, cette profondeur aux teintes grisatres, un très beau contraste, c'est magnifique.
J'aime bien l'attitude cet homme et la lumière qui vient faire reluire son crâne ;)
Bien vu, bien composé et bien cadré.

Beaucoup de sérénité dans le sourire et l'attitude de ce bonze.
Très beau constraste entre le safran de sa robe et les tons gris de la pierre des temples.

Nice composition Oscar, the colours of his robe against the temple work very nicely.
PS I have a photo very similar, have a look
