And here’s one more, a third and final entry for the Tomb Raider Reborn contest, featuring the model Danailya and the Temple of Ta Prohm (Angkor Wat). This is the cheesiest one of all.

If you like this, please COMMENT and FAVE it, to show the contest organizers you support my work.

Note: The contest does not allow the use of stock. Thus let me stress THIS IS NOT STOCK. This is a composite of two photos which I took, one of the model posing in an abandoned building in Canmore (Canada) about a month ago, the other of the Temple of Ta Prohm, which I visited while travelling in Cambodia seven months ago.

This temple was used as a filming location for the 2001 movie Tomb Raider.

Anyhow, I realize my photo editing/manipulation skills are not very good, and as there are many far better images already submitted to the contest, I have no chance of winning, I still thought it’d be fun to enter, especially considering I do have these great photos to work with.

What exactly does this have to do with the Tomb Raider reboot, exactly?

Uh... it's a pretty girl in a tomb, which is EXACTLY what Tomb Raider is.

...funny, here I was thinking the Tomb Raider reboot was about a strong female protagonist with realistic weaknesses in a harsh location pretty much fighting every inch for survival, dealing with both women hating men and dangerous environmental hazards. In effect, trying to step as far away from "pretty girl running around in tombs" as humanly possible.

Seriously, I'm left wondering if you ever heard Rihanna Pratchett describe the game's focus or read a single review of it.

It's a game. Something for fun and enjoyment. You're taking it way to seriously.

Are you also picking on the 1500 other entries that fall along the same lines?

I'm not picking on you I'm being bluntly honest, there's a difference.

If I'm taking it way too seriously, observe the following:

I'm the tip of the iceberg pal. And I could just as well claim that your medium of photography isn't that serious, it's just luck, composition, and timing.

In all seriousness, I was actually more or less pointing out how your submission doesn't... really seem like it's trying to listen to what they're looking for, instead it really seems like you're just putting out what you want, but for some reason in a contest. If I'm suddenly a bully for pointing out a possible mistake or bad decision, then I guess I've become a bigger hardass than Raspil.

Well, she's actually wearing an outfit inspired by the game, she's wielding a bow, there's a slight sense of familiarity to the game itself, and the setting works. Definitely better than what was there before.
