Cambodia - Tonle Sap by lux69aeterna Cambodia - Tonle Sap by lux69aeterna
The Tonle Sap lake in Cambodia is mostly known for its villages on stilts, up to 10 meters high, as well as for the floating villages. During the dry season the lake has a surface of 2500 km² and as the rainy season is at its peak, it quadruples it's surface till 10 000 km².

The Mekong river is fed by the lake in the dry season, and when the rainy season starts, a unique natural phenomenon takes place: the Mekong changes its course and fills the Tonlé Sap lake.

I hope you'll like it!

Gosh I remember being there and it was freaky standing above water especially seeing the river running through in the crack of the floor :XD:

I don't know what to say except it's a beautiful shot.

I really think it being black and white brings out the textures in the village, the water, and the clouds.

So beautiful!

Ja mijn eerste indruk van de kleuren is ook positief, al lijken de daken rechtsboven wat in te lopen met de lucht :)

Dank je Dennis, eigenlijk was de kleurenversie ook goed, maar ik wilde er iets meer speciaals van maken :) Leuk dat je't mooi vindt!

Sommige foto's zijn meerzeggend als je kleuren uitschakeld, elke kleur kan dan ongewild de aandacht opeisen waar je het niet wilt en dat gebeurt niet met deze foto. Bij deze foto blijf je kijken om nieuwe dingen te ontdekken, alsof het eens schilderij is. Ik ben benieuwd hoe de foto het in zwart-wit zou doen met verhoging van contrast, ik vermoed dat het beeld te sterk of te hard gaat worden. Ik heb namelijk een soort van liefde voor zwart-wit, maar op de een of andere manier verplicht ik mezelf niet om hier iets mee te doen.
Hoe dan ook, ik vind deze foto echt heel mooi, komt heel mooi over als duotoon. ;)

Ik heb al zo veel foto's getrokken van het meer, maar t'is moeilijk om iets goeds te hebben... Ik zou die wel mooi vinden op canvas denk ik...

Deze foto is idd een heel mooi onderwerp om op canvas te laten trekken en zonder kader aan de muur te hangen, een muur die eventueel aansluit in een gelijkaardige kleur, zo krijg krijg je een andere dimensie van de foto.

Kan je in overweging nemen, misschien alvast eentje om zelf te zien hoe het eruit ziet. :)
