Taken inside one of the temple complexes around Siam Reap in Cambodia. With this shot I wanted to capture the range of colours, textures and light that presented themselves. Daylight was coming through the stone doorway and catching on the smoke, casting contrast onto the face of the statue. I liked the bright hues clashing with the dull cold rock. The different elements- the hard stone, the ethereal smoke, the soft material, the flickering candle- the image presented a little bit of everything to me. It was shot hand-held on high ISO to reduce the camera-shake and it’s still not sharp as I might have liked, but for the fairly extreme light conditions, the little G9 did a decent job.
