    I assume we only enter one photo, correct?

    Prasat Phanom Rung in the northeast of Thailand - apparently the same era as Angkor Wat and less than 200km apart. This is an amazing structure, but like many it it difficult to determine which parts of the overall structure are original and how much other parts have been rebuilt / renovated; and to what degree. A little mould and dirt covers many details.

    This was my first real attempts with Silver Efex Pro; unfortunately I am traveling and cannot edit these further.

    Olympus EPM1 with Oly 17mm @ ISO200, F:5.6 if I recall correctly.

    And the winner is............

    Now my top two pics.


    First place is Pim's amazing photo. I love the lines and angles.

    The runner up is addlieleman's photo. I chose it for the variety of shapes and the overall tone.

    Thanks you to everyone for submitting all the great photos. Now Pim gets to direct the next 72 hr blue ribbon challenge.

    Regards,
    Kelly:2thumbs:

    Wow, my first ever win on any of the challenges or competitions..:) Thanks Kelly for picking my entry! And I guess it must be a first as well to have the winner and runner up coming from 2 people from the same (relatively small) city in the Netherlands... Correct me if I am wrong Ad but surely you must live in Eindhoven as well given some of your recent posted pics... your shot is a place I pass every day on my way to work at least...

    Anyway,I will have a good think about the next challenge and will post as soon as possible!

    Congrats, Pim, well done! :thumbup: And thanks Kelly, for picking me as the runner up, I'm honoured. Indeed Pim, I also live in Eindhoven; the location of my picture here is a 15-minute bike ride south of where I live.
