Hello dear Chris!
Great shot in lovely details and beautiful vivid colors. Great shot of the ancient design and architecture. Only that the sky is little OE.
TFS, indeed lovely shot!
I have heard the word 'pnomh' before so researched it to find that it means mountain.
Very interesting notes to accompany the shot.
The pov is good, taking every advantage of the repeating conical structures, which mimic the upper part of the temple on the right.
The inclusion of the person helps us to assess the massive scale of the structure.
For me, the saturation is too intense.
I popped it into PS and with saturation -20% I think it looks great. I didn't post it as a w/s as you would easily be able to do this yourself.
Have a good w/e,

As always, your composition is spot on. The partial wall to the left provides a good anchor, while the raised area leads into the shot nicely. Something didn't look quite right to me with the colors, but I see that this has been discussed and explained.
Have a great weekend.

Buena imagen de estas ruinas del templo que estan bastante abandonado ,es una lastima porque tenia que ser una fanstastica construccion , gracias por por compartir
Buen fin de semana
I joined TL as a result of a web search on Cambodia - I was then planning a trip, someday I will scan a shoebox of my analog Cambodia photos. I don't think I visited Pnomh Bakeng. The ruins depicted are impressive and glow in the early morning light. Cheers.

Un bon commentaire accompagne cette superbe image prise dans un environnement sauvage et naturel.
Attention à ne pas trop accentuer la netteté, mais aussi garder un peu de douceur dans les traits.

I like the rugged look the light of the setting sun offered you here. The ruins actually appear as what we would imagine ruins to look like in the jungled area of SE Asia. The strong light offered even stronger color, and with the rock fortification of the temple it is a great shot.

A beautiful temple caught with talent. The polarizing filter is made all the details with precision and enhanced the image of this historical subject
