Skull Floating in Angkor Wat

Skull floating in Angkor Wat temple complex, Cambodia. Surreal art by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Cambodian Blue.

This is take number two on this idea. The first was a different base image, different part of the temple, and different skull. Same color scheme, though.

I spend ages composing and polishing it, then realized it was just wrong. Weird composition, unfortunate lighting with a lot of shadow on one side, and the blue skull looked out of place.

That happens sometimes. I think one of the important parts of being an artist is being able to honestly evaluate your work and drop anything that falls below your personal standards. Regardless of how much work went into it!
