Ghost monks at Angkor Wat, Cambodia

I just processed this photo today and wanted to get it up on the site ASAP. I was set up with my tripod deep in Angkor Wat when two monks walked passed me. I clicked the shutter five times as they walked past. I took three of the exposures and blended them together to get this ghost like effect. It was the first time I ever did something like this. I didn’t even think of making a photo like this when they walked by, I just clicked away figuring I could do something later with it.

  1. What a cool effect! I’m going to Cambodia this January and keep searching for pics from the country, never saw this before though ;-)

  2. Very nice… few who see the Ghost Monks ever live to tell the tale ;)

  3. What an appropriately atmospheric backdrop for such an uncanny effect, especially as it was unplanned! Obviously, you're a natural-born talent behind the camera. :-)

  4. Nice effect. I like the photo but would have like to see it though a little wider lens. Still very nice.

    Seeing Ankor for the first time was truly a life changing moment for me – I arrived right after a big rain and everything was green and shiny, truly a breathtaking moment for me

    I am going back next month for the first time in over 7 years, cant wait to see it again
