This photo is from the same roll of film as the previous. A roll of TriX 400 that I shot in the sunlight at 1600 and pushed 2 stops for a contrasty, grainy, artistic effect.

This statue is one of many around a Buddhist temple at the waterfall in the previous shot.

One could imagine that this photo was taken on the moon where, due to no atmosphere, there is no bright sky to fill in the shadows making sunlight surfaces bright and clear and shadows as black as night. In actuality, the sun was coming in from one angle, while the fill light from the sky from the opposite angle was blocked by trees.  I didn’t take notes, but I don’t recall using any filters on this shot.
