Ahhh.... but is a gate a building? You knew you would get hammered submitting this didn't you (BTDT) :P

Someone built it, I think : ) Of course I knew ...
And it's not all that blurry considering I was driving by at about 35 mph at the time ...

Well seen and an unusual take on this challenge. Not sure if the building is abandoned or the field is, but regardless, the fencing seems to be taking top honors as a focal point instead of a building. Image is a bit soft/needing to be a bit sharper/clearer. (4)

Nothing about this photo would suggest abandoned building to me. It suffers size and clarity issues probably due to the resize of the image. Perhaps a better subject would have made for a better photo for this challenge. Good luck in this challenge.

It's a little unclear what I should be focusing on in the picture. The fence seems like it should be the center of attention but looks lost to the background.

Where is the abandoned building? Is that a strip mall, or motel? I don't think the fence helped convey an abandoned look.

Not sure if you could get closer, but I'd like to see a closer picture of the building.

Composition could have been better - you cut off one end of the house. Also, because of positioning, it seems like the gate is the center of attention. Entire image is out of focus.
