Preah Khan dates from 1191 ad /ce, during the reign of King Jayavarman VII.
A detailed close up of a bas relief wall carving, depicting 3 Hindu holy men.
The base looks unlevel, but is actually curved.

This is a impressive fresque, the texture is very strange, do you what is the signification of the stautes?
i like them a lot, but they make me scared.

You have shown a way to well use the lighting condition here. The 3D of the sculpture can be tell clearly. The darkened color showed the age of the place. A nice, clear, and well contrasted detail shot.

Great relief picture, the three Preah Khan effigy are very sharp and clear, I agree with Jean Yves, I've personally noticed scanning works better on closer shots than on wide landscape views or night photos.
Well seen Chris!

Interesting detail of the intricate wall carvings, Chris. Impressive textures and a nice limited color setting, well shown with good sharpness and contrast.

It's interesting that the blocks seems to have been placed as a wall first and then the carvings were made. Beautiful craftsmanship, especially the branches at the top. The three men togehter make a great composition. You captured the weathered textures here really well.

Very nice texture and almost monochromatic colors. It makes the patterns more powerful.

Nicely framed view of these ancient and somewhat scary artworks, I see their motive in repeated in a smaller size at the left. Good scan output, I've personally noticed scanning works better on closer shots than on wide landscape views or night photos.
Have a nice day,

Ce bas-relief est parfaitement représenté et parfaitement cadré; c'est très passionant.
