Peter Lik Recognizes “Ta Prohm Temple” Image

Recently, I received great acclamation from one of my inspirations.  International award winning and world renowned fine art panoramic landscape photographer, Peter Lik, commented  on one of my images of “Ta Prohm Temple” captured in Cambodia.  Lik commented, “Mate.  Seriously.  Love it.  Amazing image, so much feeling to it.  Congrats.  Lucky ya had the soft light.  Sensational.”  This unique image of Ta Prohm Temple was taken in November 2008 with a Linhof 617 S III Technorama medium format panoramic camera using Fuji Velvia 100 professional slide film.  Peter is attributable to the photgrapher I am today and this is truly a great honor for me personally.
