Theravada Buddhist Monk in Meditation

    This was shot outside the defensive gatehouse of Angkor Wat with a backdrop of the moat in the distance. I also used the new technique here that I will be detailing in an upcoming tutorial. This is an HDR shot, which you can read about in my previous tutorial here:

      I like it Trey...

      Notwithstanding the comments by the_matt, It WOULD be a good landscape & it WOULD be a good portrait. What it DOES do is give the feeling of being there! The composition is good in my book, as I know that these places always have monks looking on/meditating/praying. Therefore this shot has more life that a landscape from that part of the world.
      Anyway, the shots please you. That is why you do it, right?

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      to be fair - comments such as that one are meant to be *constructive* criticism... hope that comes across...

      Awesome shot. I really like the simplicity! I think it's well-composed. the monk helps fill the frame.

      Intriguing converging and opposing reflections.
      Moves the eye into the photograph..
      Monk seems more distracted then meditative..
      Which fits the mood of the background.
