This is my favorite image of 2007. Taken during my trek around northern Thailand at the Chapel of Wat Rong Khun just south of Chiang Mai. Not really sure of the true meaning of the pit of hands but to me it looks like hell!

it's a great photo all except for the sign in the middle. the title doesn't really seem to fit though.

I'm sure this location deserves some of the credit but even so you do a great job of conveying a mass of desperation leading to a laughing god.

Whoa...what an intense place.

Wow, what is this?? Very dramatic.

to busy and over processed to me.

Interesting capture, doesnt look real.

Seems quite noisy at the top.

Extremely overprocessed, but results give it a mythical look, which is what I am assuming you were going for. The processing of the sky makes it a little to grainy for my liking but I do like the contrast in the lower part of the image. GOod Luck. 5.

to oever processed for my taste. the signs really take away from the magical quality you are shooting for here.

the left side of the statue looks like theres ghosting going on or something. Overall this photo suffers from a lot of image noise.

Crazy fantasy realm. Very intriguing.

It's an interesting subject. Composition is good. But the HDR goes too far for my personal taste.
