When I was at the famous spot, he asked me to take photo at the background of Angkor Wat. This was the first time for him and it took 5 hours by bus from his village. I asked his address to send photo later, but he said "No thanks". That was strange for me.
But he seemed to be a little sad and lonely.
I cannot forget him right now too.

I love these kinds of exposure, clear details of the model at the foreground and hazy view of the place at the background. Good shooting, but just I can say that maybe your model could be not so in the middle, if he has been at more lateral to focus on him may be easier and the whole view of the place at the back can be seen, I'm sure you know the rule of "1/3" at compo.
Also your story is very interesting :)
Very well done..

Great portrait and very nice composition. I would added some more contrast though.

very good photo - and a little sad note...
Very good DOF and pleasant natural colours.
I've read the comments and your reply before I thought of expressing my opinion about the composition. Well, then that explains it all!
In all other aspects, as usual - an excellent portrait!

The depth of field in this is perfect, giving a great esnse of mystery to the temple. You have captured a great image of this young man, and once again, the sadness you mention in your note is visible in the mans face. Very nice image.
