Mid afternoon in East Mebon temple in Angkor. The sun was scorching. There was this man, blissfully asleep in front of the sealed gateway. I wanted to take into the frame, his wares and the musical instrument too.
Hope you like this

Hi Anshu, good idea, composition and I like the colors too. :) However, IMHO some improvements are needed (see the Workshop I did, hope you like it). And obviously it would have been nice to catch the whole guy, including the toes of his right foot. Cheers, Daniel.

A extraordinarily picture, but absolutely good placing, I like the wonderful figure in foreground. Very sharp and clear.
I find your picture better than the Ws of pastadog.

I like your inclusion of the wares gives more context to the photo rather than just a sleepign man. I would have like to see his toes though but I guess you were concentraing on gettign the little figures in the frame.

I like the composition and like the small details in the left, so I think you did the right job by not cropping the left; however the top can be cropped a bit to give a 3:2 format, as the top does not have something to show more. I like the color and a nice daily life picture. I would like to see more human elements on your picture like this and "Children of Angkor". Take care.

Ahaha, he was making a pause in the freshness of the stones of Angkor ruins. A very nice picture, the yellow shir is jumping out the compo. Shhhh, do not disturb him ;o)))

Hello Angshu, I like this photo with this man just taking a rest and sleeping as if he was at his home. Nice colors too. Good testimony of the daily life in this country. It is a shame that in Europe we cannot sleep in the street so easily. Thanks

A good POV of this relaxing moment, the photo has nice colors and a good composition.

Interesting image. Original place with such original subject. I like colours and light. Funny scene from street(this is my favourite kind of photography). I wish only see whole foot, so... maybe will be better direct camera one centymeter for right side.

He always sleep! I think your picture is also very good, maybe you could add a bit contrast, but little things...
Now he is famous! Hehe..
Good job and thanks for sharing!

I enjoy this seller... working hard !!! This is typical from this kind of place : you are right to call that "Serinity...". Well seen and composed even if I wish you didn't cut the foot of the man.

This popped up in random and I couldn't resist this peaceful fellow. I think the framing is very effective too. HLJ, Pat
