Love those pictures of Ta Phrom, no surprise to hear it's been used as a film location at least once. In a similar vein, Indiana Jones appropriated Petra in Jordan for The Last Crusade.

This is not so much an abandoned place, but incredible, natural pictures of rainbow mountains in China.

Stunning! :D

Hmmm, I think they're enhanced. The people are too colourful I think?

Wow!! Possibly enhanced. Perhaps these are more realistic?

Still stunning though!

Looks amazing, processed or unprocessed. I don't mind the photoshopping, you can see why someone boosted the contrast, but ideally I do like to know if an image has been tweaked or not.

It was in King George, near Dahlgren, VA. It was a little off the beaten path, which probably didn't help things. The current VA RenFaire is apparently doing OK.
