Photographer's Note

I hesitated for a long time, whether I want to post this image, since the site is infiltrated with this similar images in various time of day and POVs. You can’t really find any thing different or new. Well, I think I deserved to post at least one. This one I was fortunate to have caught the children playing near the pond. Children in this part of the world grow up fast and have to take care of their younger siblings, while their parents tending to business, perhaps a shop selling souvenirs and drinks to tourists. That's why they were play around the area.

Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation—first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.

I did some slight selective sharpening in the foreground, because I was focusing at the temples so the children were not as sharp due to the low light.
