Photographer's Note

This was taken at the Phnom Penh Killing Fields. The sign is pretty self explanatory, but just to elaborate; children that could be easily be lifted would be grasped and swung by their ankles, dashing their heads against the tree. I guess this was more economical than bullets, and didn't blunt a sharp knife that would have to be sharpened. On a personal level it is not the tree or it's history that really gets to me in this picture, it is the small alter behind it. Placed upon it are bones that have been found on site recently. I placed into it seven teeth that I found in the dust. I wasn't looking for teeth, they were just plainly/painfully and obviously scattered around.

In PS:
* Curves to adjust contrast.
* Selected just the sign and used curves to enhance the contrast of tthe text to make it easier to read.
* Ran the shadow burn tool over the tree to darken it and deepen the texture, particularly over the knotted mass.
* Ran the highlight dodge tool over the bones on the alter to make them stand out more.
