Panasonic DMC-GX7       3rd place, 224 points
1/125s, f3.5, ISO 200, 38mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Straighten, sharpen, clarity, slight vignette.       Extra Info: This is a place I have passed by many times over the years and wanted to photograph. The puddle left over from a recent heavy rain was serendipitous.

    I like this shot very much. The reflection makes all the difference here. Without it, this is just a shot of an old house.

    Beautiful picture in all that ugliness. The reflection in that puddle is important for the view.

    two pictures for the price of one
might have cloned the white sofa to make the reflection the same

    Nice shot. Right on the theme. The reflection of the building adds interest.

    The building on its own is really photo worthy, but with the reflection, it's a knock-out. Love the composition and the vibrant colours.

    Would have been a good photo without the puddle but it's soooo much better with it. Well done.

    Great subject, like your composition and the reflection really adds adge. Would be nice to have a little darker sky.

    Wow, what a puddle! I like this shot a lot and the colours stand out beautifully. Just a thought: does the vividness of the picture take away from the abandoned theme? In my top ten.

    Nice image; however, I am not sure that the reflection helps. You might have tried to get closer so as to detail more of the neglect. In my TT.

    Interesting building and the puddle adds a lot. Nice light, and good colour but it appears a bit bright to me, and I'm wondering if a crop from the right between the tree and the window might give the picture more impact...

    Meets the theme, good lighting, well focused, and a free reflection.
