SUNSET IN THE CANAL

SUNSET IN THE CANAL

Angkor Thom, Siem Reap, Cambodia

THE STORY

If you ever go to Angkor, don’t follow the crowds into the sunrise and sunset main destinations. They’re over crowded and they suck – and even if you succeed on getting a nice shot, it will be just like everybody else’s. Download one from the Internet, if you like, and use your time to find your own sunset – there are endless spots to choose from. This is just the canal that you’ll find between Angkor and Bayon.

THE TECHNIQUE

Sun sets in the middle of the left margin so I took it from the right side of the bridge (you can also climb the nearby wall from the inside). Use matrix metering and / or overexpose a bit. Thinking on the image, afterwards, I could have gone for slighter less aperture (f/8, maybe), and drop the speed until 1/5, even hand holding the camera. Anyway, it’s not, overall, bad.
