Utilizing the definition of old and worthless- me, not the door or knocker :D Note how critical the position of the pinkie is in achieving great images :lol:

Thought this might get the challenge rolling.

Good subject Bambi and you've done some work to the headstone photograph from the last time I saw it. The markers really pop!

I won't/didn't have any free time to get out for something new. So in the spirit of participation I've dug up a couple never posted by certainly outside of the guidelines. So just for fun. :D

These were taken in a old hospital in London Ontario, parts of it were over 130 years old and it has been phased out over last few years now most of the floors are abandoned with just a few clinics and offices left.

Ok I missed the deadline (I've never been very good with deadlines), but as the final result hasn't been posted yet, I hope I can sneak this one in.

I'm not sure it can be called derelict as such, rather just a bit old and weather worn. This was taken in Venice, where the ground floor of people's houses often flood, and as such get largely abandoned as people live in the first floor upwards. Obviously fighting the water is a constant battle, and keeping the canal side houses in pristine condition is an impossibility.

thanks everyone for participating. this was fun for my first time :)
here are my comments - for whatever they are worth:

Larry: I love the humourist take on this. The doorknob is cool and I would have loved to see the shot you got with it. it's a lesson on how to take good pictures- I have to remember to use the pinkie. :lol:

Mike: I love these sort of shops and buildings. Your first is lovely with the mix of new growth on old buildings. it shows us that nature is very powerful. My only nit is that the top of the door sill is cut off. But I love the textures and colours. Your second makes me feel like i am standing right where you were. I love the light and the processing. I get a really strong sense of abandonment with this one.the graffitti on the wall adds to this as well. I am glad you didn't clone it out.

Drkranger: for your first, I love the composition and that you got on a low angle. there's such a collection of old things from the trap to the lantern to the post and the rusty thingy on the bottom. Everytime I look at it I see something new. My only nit is that the colour balance seems a bit off. The lake tahoe building is really cool as well. I love that you defied the ROT on this and put it dead center. It might be neat to take from a low angle but it still really works. the textures are terrific and the hint of mountain in the background help set the scene.

Patrish: I'm not sure what this building was used for but you captured it's deterioration perfectly. Love the perspective and that you pulled back to show the whole scene. It has a vaguely spooky quality to it but not overdone. B&W might have worked here too but then we would lose the greens. it's too bad the sky was blown but nothing you can do about that.

Eastsider- glad you participated if just for fun. I love the first shot- having the abandoned toy in such destruction really adds to the story and reminds us that people once lived there.I like the muted colour palette too. Your second one screams modern decay to me. I can see how this was once an active and vibrant area but now is gone. the perspecitive of looking out the window to the store is terrific.

Paul- great textures and composition in this shot. the fence is a real find and including it in the foreground with the pile of stuff is great. My only nit is that the fence seems a bit oversharpened on my monitor. The exposure and colour are terrific and love the sky.

Gerhard- neat take on the challenge. Rather then show the scene you show us the reaction of people who had been there.

Timmy- you snuck in under the deadline as far as I'm concerned. If anyone wants to complain please report to the complaint department here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdoGVgj1MtY
what a terrific shot with the decaying building, water and graffitti. my only nit is the boat is OOF and partly there. good colour and exposure though.


and now my choice. this was hard! really hard but fun. The entries were all so terrific but I have to choose (drumroll please):

Thanks Bambi. The top of the door on the first bugs me a bit too, but the "streets" in Croatia are so narrow, I couldn't back up any further. I was forced to make a choice between the top or the bottom. The full door frame is actually there, I just placed the top of the frame right along the very top edge of the image.
