this is a wonderful subject. I like the color contrast between the warm rust and bricks and the cool grass. you might want to try to tone down the sky. if you made the whole image a little darker, it might enhance the abandoned feeling of the building and keep the sky from bleeding like that. nice shot.

Something old. Use your photographic technique to emphasize the age of your subject.
Composition - good. I'd like to see it without the metal roof in foreground
Technical Aspects - quite good
Meets Challenge - probably. Might look unkempt, not old.
Visual Impact / Originality - good

Foreground (corrigated tin) image detracts from building. =5 in my humble opinion - syamjonimi

nice title :) I like the "DOF" - as it is commonly refered to on this site...

Wonderful subject. Slightly overexposed. I would crank the EV down 2/3 to 1 stop

Nice use of the old roofing to get something into the foreground.

very nice example of 'rustic' :) I think the top portion of this image is slightly over exposed.. .maybe a neutral density or polarizing filter would remedy this one. Good shot :) - jmsetzler

Good job of conveying the subject. I like the contrasting colors of bright greens and brown/red rust. The amount of new growth over and around the structure and the metal help define your subject. Great framing too.

Very nice composition of the picture. The corrugated metal in the front is a real eye-catcher and the vanishing of the colours towards the back are great! Congratulations

What is derelict? The building? The wall? The corrugated iron sheet? Nice focus, colour and contrast but the picture lacks direction. Where are we supposed to be looking?

I'd have been tempted to focus on the rusty iron in front and leave the house out.

The sky washes out the top of the building and tree bark.Otherwise really nice composition,you were standing in exactly the right place.

I like this photo very much, especially the foreground interest leading the eye back into the bakground. Very well done.

I love the composition and the colours in this photo. Very well done.

The low saturation in the rooftop's colors and the white space above takes away from what could have been a stronger composition. I think a bit of saturation would have definitely helped.
