[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in Poipet, the border town in western Cambodia, looking back towards Aranya Prathet in Thailand. There were hundreds of Cambodian entrepreneurs with their carts, & beggars, all waiting to cross the border into Thailand & sell their goods at a slightly higher price, than what they'd get in Cambodia.

My main focus here was the line of people. If anyone wants to see the top of the structure, it can be seen HERE, on Trek Earth

Hey Chris. I have been here myself. :) A very interesting place! This is a good photo with good lighting although I wish the tops of the gate were not cut off. Other then that it is a good photo. Nice job. JP

good details, well exposed shot, pity the top of the gate was cut...

the colors are beautiful, good note too

What an interesting looking place - your write up is very helpful, and the scene represents the activity very well. The gate, what wondereful carving all over, I only wish I could see the top. TFS - Sam.

Very interesting shot Chris,it's a complete other culture and this shows in the picture , for the technical quality I think it shows what you tried to capture..colors are good and sharpness too , just for i wouls like to se those tops of the arch .

Hi Chris, this is a good daily life photo and it gives us a chance to see what is life like in places we've not visited yet. the colors and details are great but it would have been a lot better if the top was not cropped. Ron

hello, well, thanks for the welcome. you know how to do it better, this scene is great but you cut the door city, I will like to see it, very interesting details. But I like the ambiance and colors. Thanks ;-)

I think I have been there. I had all my bags on my body running to catch up with everyone else.

Hi Chris,
I had a look at all your shots - I love them all, it seems you have seen every asian country, wonderful.
This place was so horrible for me.
We had to wait 3 hours in a hot room before we were in Cambodia. And so many poor people there, I never want to go back to this place!
But Angkor war marvelous, have you ever been there?
Thanks and have a wonderful weekend, bye

Hi Chris. This is very good to see another place seen by few westerners i suspect. Excellent details visible and interesting notes. TFS. Murray.
