La porte de la victoire est une des 5 portes d'entrée dans l'ancienne cité Khmer de Angkor Thom. Comme les 4 autres portes elle est couronnée par des figures géantes de bouddha orientées vers vers les 4 points cardinaux
The Victory Gate of Angkor Thom is one of the five gateways into the ancient Khmer city of Angkor Thom. The Victory Gate, just like the other gates of Angkor Thom, is topped by giant stone faces in the four cardinal directions.

amazing gate and the faces on it really maker an impression. The chosen POV offers wider angle perspective and one can see not only the building but also some surroundings. Nice idea to include the single tuk tuk on the road which adds sense of scale and diversifies the composition. Very nice quality picture - my congratulations!
Thankis for sharing

This is a very beautiful view, and for me a unique scene too as its the same wonderful style of building and art, but in a gateway instead of a temple. By including the small vehicle emerging you have given a great sense of scale while the light has brightened up the greenery to perfection!
All the best

Cette porte de la cité Khmer est vraiment impressionnante. Le "taxi à touristes" local complète bien la compo.

The Victory Gate of Angkor Thom is one of the five gateways into the ancient Khmer city of Angkor Thom, almost the same as our old mediaval cities with the different gates.
But your picture is very well taken, in high quality
Really pleasant place and perfect sharpness.
Excellent composittion, pleasant of colours too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Easter weekend for you and your family,

You have photographed this extraordinary place very well. There are lovely detail and colours in the old stonework and the picture shows how it has become blended into the jungle. The tuk tuk coming through the gate and the small child standing adds interest.
Very well taken.
Kind Regards, Ann

Une scène très attractive et attirante. Les couleurs vivante de la vegetation sont sublime et l'ancien architecture Khmer est imposante. Le Tuk Tuk nous donne une bonne point de reference à la grandeur de cette ancienne portail.

Beautiful presentation of this gate where it stands nice and big in the image so that the viewer can fully appreciate the intricate details of the architecture. The rickshaw is also well placed adding an element of interest in the foreground; and the lush greenery and pale blue sky make your image bright and colourful.
