Winners of 210 Abandoned.
Posted By: mde1970, 07-09-2012, 12:11 AM

Ive had a pretty busy week so have only had a quick peek at the entries so far until today. Firstly Ill say what a great standard, some really cracking shots this week. So, top 4 for me this week are;
4. Tamia Damp, smashed windows & plaster flaking from the walls, a classic decaying room. I like the processing a lot on this one.

3. jheu02 Nice photo & a clever take on the theme.

2. Casil403 very nice shot of old abandoned car. Great rusty tones. Also looks like it was taken on a pretty wide lens (unless Im wrong) which gives a nice POV. Must admit it was a close call between this and first place.

This weeks winner is Sealonsf. I really like the POV for this as well as the Black & White slightly noisy processing of the image (looks like a shot from an old movie). If the building was in the UK Id be driving over for a look right now J . Well done and Ill pass the baton on to you for next week's challenge.

What a totally nice surprise. Glad you liked the image. This building gave me the creeps. Very, very dusty and I would love to know more about its history. We were there to see "Fat Camp the Musical" (ha!) so the building stood in stark contrast to seeing an Off-Broadway Musical (which was really good, BTW). I had fun with the processing to bring out an old feel for the photos.

And I do mean surprise because there were some excellent photos and when I saw Casil403's photo I pretty much thought, "game over" but this is all for fun so thought I'd give it a go.

The new challenge has been posted -- TREES. Can't wait to see what you all come up with. Thanks again.

my apologies (the dangers of copy paste)!

I'm not sure I can edit this now. Can a mod correct this perhaps?
