The Gate

One of the gates at the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. What is funny about these is that they are all along the palace walls but you can only get in at one place.

You can also make out some of the mural along the wall on the inside. This is standard I guess because the Royal Palace in Bangkok had the same thing when I visited there.

I did make this HDR out of a single image. For stuff like this HDR works well. So a single image HDR was done in Aurora and I called it done.

Enjoy.

Cambodian Royal Palace

Behold! I took pictures while in Cambodia! I will admit the .65 cents (US) beer was also very tempting. There may be less photos and more been consumption than normal but at .65 who can complain? That’s cheap even compared to Thailand.

This is the entrance to the Royal Palace; well in theory. Real entrance is about 300 meters to the right but the nice guards pointed me to it. Then I got charged $10 to enter the place. I could have taken this shot and been done with it to be honest but I would have missed the Silver Pagoda which is more interesting than the palace itself which is sealed off for most areas.

I only took my Sony RX10 on this trip. I went light because Asian carriers are a pain in the ass about weight allowances on baggage. So with a 24-200mm lens on the camera it would do what I needed and then some.

This isn’t HDR I just did my normal routine and then started adding filters until it looked right. I didn’t even bother to blend the stuff. It just came out looking good and in the end I was happy.  I also left the bird flying on purpose. Think it adds a bit of something.

Enjoy.
