Ankor Wat is probably the most famous building in the Ankor complex, and a symbol of Cambodia and one of the most famous buildings in the world. This was shot at sunrise, where we managed to beat the tour buses, and also being wet season, there were not quite as many crowds.
Angkor Wat is a temple complex built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. It is the largest religous structure in the world and was originally built for Hindu deities, and later used as a Buddhist temple.

I can't understand that you haven't got more response to that picture.
This is a very nice picture indeed. The perfect silhouette of the temple against that amazing sky is very eye catching and pleasant. Even your framing with giving the sky so much space in the frame is very good.
have good weekend

With the sun out of the way you have controlled the exposure really well achieving a very appealing effect. The silhoutted icons stand out stunningly with the golden glow gives the impression of fire on the low sky. This is balance of nature, on the one side it can be looked fierce and the other one of glory! Well done, Congrats
