Cambodian Man in the Sun

Sunset Pose

This is a combination of two photographs I took a few minutes apart from each other.  While it is not my preference to combine images, I thought the effect was quite moving, and so I post it here.  This man was one of the many watching a football (soccer for Americans) match being played at the Olympic Stadium in Phnom Penh.  The stadium was completed in 1964, and was originally built to host the Southeast Asian Peninsular Games, but the games were canceled due to political problems in Cambodia. During the regime of the Khmer Rogue, the stadium was used for executions. The stadium was redeveloped, and currently use used by many of those living in Phnom Penh as an exercise center.

    Great image. I like the color of the sky and the position of the man in the frame, you have got a very good composition with the merge of the two photographs. Congratulations.
