Asian Culture 3 - Photography Contest [15 entries]

Buddhas Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
60.9%
Contest goal:

This is a contest for the everyone: the ones who live in Asia, will have a lot to show. The ones who have never been there, will have a lot to learn.
The goal of the contest is to take a picture of an Asian element, most likely a cultural thing. It can also be about people, customs and wardrobe. I believe that most of us get the change to take a shot at least of one Chinese restaurant, so let's show our 'materials'.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

The Thai greeting referred to as the wai consists of a slight bow, with the palms pressed together in a prayer-like fashion. The higher the hands are held in relation to the face and the lower the bow, the more respect or reverence the giver of the wai is showing. The elderly are always shown reverence by the young and even toddlers have their hands pressed in a wai by doting parents teaching them this greeting at a very young age. (166 days ago)
