I went back to Siem Reap, Cambodia for another taste of the temples in Angkor Wat. This time the weather was nice and cool rather than scorching hot. The cool temperature was from an incoming storm which made photographing a little more pleasant. The storm also gave me a great opportunity to get this amazing photo. I shot this HDR panorama from behind the Angkor Wat temple. Pano was shot vertically for a total of nine exposures and 3 HDR photos. Exposure for HDR was merged using Photomatix Pro software and panoramic stitching was done in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
