*****Challenge #133***** ABANDONED*****

Thank you Buckshot for the opportunity to host this forums challenge.

The new challenge is “ABANDONED”. The deadline will be Monday, Nov.21, 2011 with results announced one or two days afterward.

Don't forget - Please reply to the FIRST ORIGINAL post if you are submitting an entry. Be sure to RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE LOCATION WHERE THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN . This will enable, and perhaps inspire, others to shoot in this area. Below are a few examples. I chose the examples so you can see that anything goes!

Bombay Beach, California

Yucca, Arizona

Sage, Wyoming

Sage, Wyoming

Virginia City, Montana

Silver City graveyard, Utah

Rye, Arizona

Abandoned should be your interpretation of the word. I am looking for abandoned towns, buildings, barns, equipment, trucks, cars, hospitals, factories, farms, castles, etc. People can be involved but they need to be an important part of the scene, not the entire subject. The photo can be taken anytime within the last 3-4 years. This is not important. Finishing up your picture with an imaging editing program is allowed (post processing), even encouraged. I would love to see finished products, but this is not a requirement. Collages and photo montages are allowed.

R U L E S:
The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

1- You post ONE image (if you post more than one image, the first will be your entry in the challenge).

2- The host chooses a winner after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host) is final. The judge is not eligible.

3- The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 72 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

4- ANY NIKON CAMERA IS ALLOWED (A P&S used by a member of this forum is also allowed).

5- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put a (CC) next to the title of your image [e.g. Sunset with Canada Geese (CC)].

Please embed your image in the thread. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (900 pixels on the longest side works best).
