[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On our trip to Cambodia, part of the tour was to experience sunset on a mountaintop temple. There were too many tourists in this temple and it was very hard to find a good view without obstruction of the people. Luckily, there was a monk on one end of the temple who was also enjoying the sunset. I took this chance to take a photo of him and the sunset together. Hope you guys like it!

Combining the sunset with the monk enjoying it has worked really well here, giving the photo a lot more interest than either subject on its own. Nice photo!

Hello Vibes
Beautiful photo and artistic composition. I love the rendering of the saffron color of the monk's robe. What source of light illuminates the back of the monk?
Very well done
