Not to rain on anybodies parade... but wasn't the point of this contest to show abandonment, ie a mother walking away from a child? Not just an abandoned space..?

It's all about how you interpret it, it doesn't specifically say that you cannot do abandoned space, it just says that it needs to have some kind of story to why it was abandoned.

Though it is important that that story is shown in the screenshot.

This is map battle the purpose is the environment and how it portrays the selected theme.

Ditto. I saw that photo and I thought to myself, "Hey, that decal on the ceiling looks awfully familiar." It does look like was made in Source though.

Map battles themes are usually fairly ambiguous so they can be left to interpretation.

Soooo... My last idea was kinda.. Boring and just what I didn't want to have. An abandoned destroyed building. So, I'm trying something new. It's a sort of office building, and here you see the elevator lobby where a man has gotten stuck and obviously nobody noticed him as they left the building.

I thought so too while looking over the screenshots. But thanks ^^ Will make it smaller.

Yes Armageddon, that did inspire me, 'cause the idea just popped in my head and I thought of that vid.
