3rd place
Composition of Decomposition by gr8fulted

Nikoneer: That lower chimney that is tilting away from the structure appears to be a material printed with "bricks"... while everything else is in a massive state of dereliction, the edges of the chimney are arrow-straight, with no chipping, and the color of the bricks are consistent. If they were real, they could never be held up merely by a pair of 2x4's sticking out from the side of the house. Appearances tell me the rooftop chimney is made of the same material... tin, maybe? Whatever the case, the more modern additions--the chimneys and the No Trespassing and Private Property signs--don't remove any of the charm; they complement it. That gorgeous landscape behind it doesn't hurt, either.


4th place
Dereliction at Grove Rake Mine by Dunstickin

tigger3: Thank you for the link, I just questioned that a place in such state would be safe for the public to enter, and take pics. I guess things are different across the pond. I still question the availability of entering such a place for pic. taking. It is what it is.

5th place
Dilapidation by jerseygurl

rvdb: Old falling apart decay all good to me good one.


Ramad: It more than qualifies as an entry for the contest. Good find and capture Laura

Vickid: Your capture is superb, and you surely chose an excellent scene to photograph. The details and light allow us to see the weathered barn, with a sense of almost being there. Super shot, perfect for the contest.
