Really liked this one. Congrats on your top 20, but I think this should have done better.

think the cropping and depth of field are absolutely perfect. You matched the tones and worked your composition perfectly. Very well done

Yeah, ...damn weeds. (just kidding!)
The "greenery" could have been left out for a more dramatic effect.

Wow the clarity and exposure of this photo is incredible. The subject matter is a little busy, but still a great photo.

Wow, great concept and capture. It has even more potential if you composed it using thirds with those stunningly lit fronds on a horizontal thirds line. This is a great image, I think the composition has cost it a point

Using challenge theme as background and focusing on grass is an excellent idea, and works great here. Very well done. Grass is sharp clear and helps direct eye into corner of building. My favourite so far.

Great effect, talk about hyperfocus. This has all the right things for me.

Fabulous juxtapositioning of nature against ugly, abandoned buildings. Composition and light are good - perhaps cropping could have been a bit tighter - there is quite a lot of distraction on the left side. Great shot though and definitely a high scorer in my book.

Like the contrast options in this shot. As you stated - Beauty vs. blight, but also contrast in textures. Nicely composed, good light...bumping up.
