Bayon. Temple of the smiley Buddhas.

A must visit place if you are in Indochina...Cambodia.

There are so many smiley Buddhas that you can find two face to face, nose to nose.

Hi Sam,the choice of point of view is a winner! Perfect to show us the 2 profiles in this great way,nose to nose in a excellent sharpness and good exposure of the backlight too,well done! have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour Sam,

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. On dirait bien que ces deux immenses statues tentent de s'embrasser , comme dans une scène de cinéma.



Hi Sam,
Impressive big and high sculptures, interesting angle and result nose to nose, contrast is well managed and captured,tfs.

Very original POV, a spectacular result of your great choice. Well done!


Hi Sam.
Superb tall frame presentation capturing this Bayon. Excellent choice of pov exposing both facades in the frame.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hi Sam
I bet you're the only person to capture this scene in this manner, I doubt many people visit here and come away with this composition.

its cool that we can see how large the statues are, they're bold and strong, thick. good to see the pitting in the stone as well. cheers

Hello Sam.
Wow ....... What a splendid composition, great as you have captured the faces of these two gigantic faces, which seem to touch the nose, a very well achieved effect,
Very effective colorful, highlighting details of the image.
Very well done. I like it.
Enjoy Sunday.
My best wishes for you.

Hallo Sam
Interesting photo of the noses of the smiling Buddas, well done!

Best regards

Hi Sam,

The strong back-lighting has been well managed with good shadow detail and strong graphism of contrasting dark & light tones. Well composed too with the noses apparently touching. Tfs!

Ciao Sam
nella tua galleria ci sono foto più belle di questa, ma questa foto mi ispira simpatia e allegria, mi piace il modo in cui hai composto l'immagine e mi piace il risultato.
