In the old Dunlop Factory in Sydney, Australia.
I am told the holes in the roof were from a huge hail storm that happened in Sydney in 1999. The roof is asbestos so apparently it was abandoned because the cost of fixing it would be too great.

I suppose all the hot spots are the sun coming through holes in the roof, but they are really distracting

ok... we have something here... all those white dots on the floor, are those little dots of sunlight coming in??? if so, you could have made it so they are little light rays coming in, and that would have made your picture REALLY pop!!! it would have been front page material... this is advance editing... so you can play around a bit... i'm not an expert on that type of shot, but they always look cool, i'd love to know where this building is located!

I love the "spot lights" all across the floor. No vote, I'm in this one.

I wish I could have found some area's like this when I went shooting. I know they are around for sure but most I couldn't get into to. Anyway, this is a strong image of urban decay.

I love this scene.....the dappled light, the vastness, the grafitti.......all really work together well to convey the abandonment, dereliction, and decay......9.....I hope to see at least a Top 10 from this, perhaps a ribbon.
