Ruins 2019 - Photography Contest [11 entries]

Sweetheart abbey, Scotland Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
59%
Contest goal:

Show us a shot of a building that is now just a photo opportunity. It can't be lived in and must be showing as falling apart. Ruins are the remains of human-made architecture: structures that were once complete, as time went by, have fallen into a state of partial or complete disrepair, due to lack of maintenance or deliberate acts of destruction. Natural disaster, war and depopulation are the most common root causes, with many structures becoming progressively derelict over time due to long-term weathering and scavenging.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

Pre Rup is a Hindu temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built as the state temple of Khmer king Rajendravarman and dedicated in 961 or early 962. It is a temple mountain of combined brick, laterite and sandstone construction.

The temple's name is a comparatively modern one meaning "turn the body". This reflects the common belief among Cambodians that funerals were conducted at the temple, with the ashes of the body being ritually rotated in different directions as the service progressed. (270 days ago)
