Perfekt elevation for the shot, high enough to separate the buildings and at the same time not that high that you can't make out their size.

Thank you, the balloon is tethered to the ground Incredible views of the countryside, Angkor is a way off, so the 300mm F4 came in handy!

The K1 and 300mm F4 make for quite a combination.

If you ever get the chance to visit the complex, I highly ( no pun intended ) recommend it.
