This messy abandoned house is quite well-hidden; in fact, I hadn't known of its existence until I walked past it (or perhaps when I've been past it a couple of years ago, it wasn't abandoned.) Anyway, it seems it was occupied at least three years ago, and the letter box was overflowing - but it's definitely uninhabitable in its current state.

Another title I thought of was "Abandoned, but Well-Monitored", but I don't think many people would appreciate the pun.

Interesting idea, but there's too much to see. The poster seems to grab the viewer's attention first, but the real subject of the challenge (I'm guessing) is the garbage. Needs some compositional adjustment.

Poor Mr McCartney... pinned up and used as backing. Well hey, he hasn't been totally abandoned.

Looks like a snapshot on moving day. Everything looks kinda new. No vote just comments

Fits the challenge, but it has a very "snapshot"ish quality. Maybe that's what you were going for, but I feel that photos that look less like snapshots tend to do better with the voters. No wow factor here - except maybe: "Wow! those monitors are humongoid."
