2nd place
A Bit Worn Out by Vickid

Ramad: In spite of the minor repairs and the new small gate one cannot but notice the dilapidated condition of the rest. I think this will make a good entry for the contest.

Ramad: Congrats on your second place Vicky. Well done!

3rd place
Composition of Decomposition by gr8fulted

Lin_O: very well done on 3rd

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

Vickid: Yes, dereliction captured brilliantly the comments, perfect entry for the contest.

tigger3: I agree with Bruce, and I doubt that this place would be open to anyone to take pics.? So where did this come from?

5th place
Dilapidation by jerseygurl

rvdb: Congrats on your win Laura.


icedancer: Bravo on the 5th place - excellent entry

gr8fulted: This is certainly a photo of placing in the contest. Congratulations!

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.
