Last month's topic was "Urban Decay." Once again, you gave me a tough time in picking a winner. I want to give a special shout out to two runners up this month: Susanne Pacey of Port Hope, Canada, for her beautiful collage, "A Patchwork Quilt of Rust Images," and Gloria Rosner of Irvington, USA, for her image "Rusty Colors," which had amazing color, and a great composition.
You'll find the winning image, from David Feick, below. Enjoy!
And the winner is...
Woodstock, Ontario, Canada
"Elevator Out of Order"
Congratulations to our winner, David! "Elevator Out of Order" captures the topic of urban decay perfectly. This is a very thoughtfully and carefully composed image. The light and dark areas move our eye around, and I just love how the grid pattern on the windows is echoed inside of the elevator. The HDR treatment beings out all of the wonderful textures on the floor and walls. David, I'm glad you were able to capture this before it is refurbished.
This old warehouse elevator was in the Harvey Woods building in Woodstock, Ontario. We were fortunate to be able to photograph this building's interior before it is refurbished into affordable housing.
