*Hello from Sid and the critique club*

An uninspiring image that partially meets the challenge.

Your interpretation of the challenge is presumably intended to reflect the ravages of weather wear and tear on the structure but I see this more as dereliction and decay rather than wear and tear which I would more readily associate with continued use as opposed to the abandonment of this scene. The lighting is very harsh with some extreme contrasts and blown out highlights, I think a stop of -EC would have worked well here to rescue those highlights, the shadows have enough latitude to enable it. I think your composition could have excluded the pole to the benefit of the overall result.

Thank you for your submission, Sid

Yeah, I could definitely see this place in an episode of the "Walking Dead".
