I’m still working through the Siem Reap photos and finding that, tree roots, stone ruins, bas-reliefs and all their shadows, lend themselves beautifully to black and white. I’m not surprised, whilst some images look good in colour, the key elements in many of them relate to shape, form, texture and the direction and quality of light.
In the above image, it may not be obvious but the tree (known as a Spung) and the seedling are growing on top of a sandstone wall.
The images presented here were processed using Silver Efex Pro, given the subtlest of sepia tonings, and are part of the Cambodia 2018 gallery. ~KD
