  #204 Religion
Entry 4 of 17
   
 
Dolmen, Early Morning       ©2018 aoc46
Panasonic DMC-LX100       4th place, 105 points
1/59s, f10, ISO 320, ?, Aperture Priority, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: - global and local adjustments to brightness, saturation
- spot heal to remove distraction
- crop, resize, sharpen
      Extra Info: These Neolithic burial structures are widely found in western Europe, though some can be seen as far east as India. Most dolmens - like this one - face toward the sunrise, attesting to their religious significance for the Neolithic people who built them between 3000 and 7000 years ago.

    This is such a difficult structure to photograph well, and you did it beautifully. The long light really worked beautifully. Congratulations.

    So, are there dead bodies buried under the rocks? Very unique entry.

This is near the village of Lentillac, in the Lot department of southwest France.

    Great entry - interesting and pleasing to look at. It's so interesting that people have worshipped since the earliest of times. Well up in my faves.

    Nicely taken and of some interest. My overwhelming sense of the image is that it is just a rock, but it grows on you.

    Good shot. No doubt the oldest item in the challenge.

    I thought about taking a similar image, but sadly couldn't find the time to travel to my desired location. I'm happy you did entered this one therefore - and moreover: your image is really beautiful, love those colors and the peaceful environment. My top pick, great job! Now waiting to know where is this :)

    This is really well taken. It's not the prettiest religious structure, but you have captured it in a way that underlines its durability over time and its importance to history. Great lighting and detail.

    Elyod -
In fact there may be living relatives, but the original occupant probably never registered on Ancestry.com.

    I was delighted to see this subject among the entries. Nice low angle.

    The lack of flowers shows that he/she has no living relatives, but I like it. In my favs.
