@roy_libran, Thanks. I dont have a professional DSLR. I use a EOS 500D, and mostly I used my 18-200 lens. I used my 50mm a bit, Since it involves constant change of lens. Other items I carry are tripod, Reflector to fill additional light, and a Flash.

One question though, why are you using such a large DoF for protraits?
@arindamray, No specific reason . I always set my camera on F/8 stop most of the time. Since all of these portraits were moment captures, I try to click with the same aperture.

@all, Thanks. WIll start my next album in a while.

@abhinav, yep thats a snake. Quite a lot kids carry them around. They ask for money from tourists to take a picture by wrapping the snake. Infact they just jump in to your boats and ask you .

I'm able to view the pictures, Could you please try again.

Awesome pics! You carry reflectors with you. Thats great. I have never seen anyone carrying/using in reality. Would love to see how they can be used to improve a photograph.

Can the size of the pics be a bit bigger? Bigger pixel size.

The portraits of daily life are awesome but would appreciate if you can post some of Ankor Vat.

I use one of the five in one, portable ones. It folds neatly and fits in to the bag. Especially useful while shooting portraits against the sun, shade or indoors. Mostly I avoid using flash and reflectors fills in good natural light. I stick to gold, it gives a very good tone to the skin. I mostly used this to shoot my wife's portrait.

Default Bayon

Bayon

This is one of the best and should never be missed. There are 37 towers with faces carved on all four sides. Who the face represent is a matter of debate. It could be Loksvara,Bodhisattva, or combination of Jayavarman(King who build this) and Buddha.

Some pictures from bayon

The temples look awesome! I just wonder if they are carved out of rock or constructed of stones. Whatever the case may be, the faces are breaking.

Is n't there a conservation programme for this? IMO its a world heritage site.
There are n't any other tourists apart from you. Very strange.

How is the place as far as normal living is concerned in comparison to India?

The place was actually crowded with tourists. I try to avoid the crowded places and walk around to get the right pictures or just stay put or come again early morning, Just to get the shot I want.

the place is actually maintained very well. I would say India is no where close to maintaing our heritage sites. The place was litter free and clean. I applaud them to for maintaining it so well.

@TaureanBull, This is just one temple, there are quite a few to go.
