Photographer's Note

Borobudur is another of those places that can seem entirely removed from time, at least for a few minutes in the early morning before the crowds swarm over it.

I like this shot for a couple of reasons; principally that the key elements are iconic and timeless, and the serenity of the Buddha contrasts with the background of threatening sky and smoking volcano.

This shot required the extra dynamic range available from shooting in Raw format, as the sky was quite bright compared to the foreground. The final image is a composite of two layered conversions from Raw at different exposure values.
