Ta Prohm HDR, Siem Reap, Cambodia
I had always been fascinated by images of Ta Prohm but when I finally got to see it in person I still couldn't believe how amazing this place is! Ta Prohm is one of those places where the picture says it all! This is a 3-shot (-1, 0, +1) exposure blended in Photomatrix Pro.
On another note, my wife and I are expecting our first child and the doctor says it could be any day now. I have a few more images left of my travels but it may be a while before I can post to Flickr again.
Ta Prohm (Khmer: ប្រាសាទតាព្រហ្ម) is the modern name of a temple at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and originally called Rajavihara (in Khmer: រាជវិហារ). Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors.
