This may be too subtle but I'm thrilled with how I got the "x" of the chainlink fence in front of the door. I have prettier shots but this is cool. I just need one person to see and appreciate that "x!"

this is way better than a 4.6 .. i really like the oof wire .. it gives an interesting feeling to the photograph .. nearly voyeuristic .. loving the 'x' .. the colours are excellent and so is that sign there .. 'no trespassing' ..
it really is a bloody shame when somthing really good does so badly .. :)

Wow, Mary! I think this is really cool! I can't believe they gave this a 4.6 :( Baaaaaaaad voters!

I don't think they much liked my blurry addition to my photo either. Guess you gotta love those non-artsy types too, huh??? (Ok, sometimes not!)

I don't care for the chain link in the foreground, I am sure you put it there as part of the theme, but theres not enough house's form in the frame for me.

good shot but the fencing detracts...if possible try to shoot between links. Still a nice shot. 7

the out of focus wire adds that "i am out here looking inside" feeling. Nice, but a bit dark

would shoot in between the holes of the fence rather having a big blurr in the picture

The fence takes away from the picture

I think I would have liked this better without the fence in the foreground.

Poor composition. while I appreciate including the fence in the photo, you would have been better served to move the lens a bit to the right placing the fence off to the left more, revealing the boarded up doorway and taking the no trespassing sign out of the center.
