The Challenge

Fasteners of any kind (lock attachments)

The focal points are based on the last two themes, Rustic and Old.

Judging / Voting Criteria

For this challenge we are looking for old, rustic and deteriorated locks, padlocks, chains and whatever fasteners attach to doors, gates, windows or anything that you can find which fits that criteria. Detail and Clarity are essential with each image submitted.

There are countless numbers of locks/fasteners out there, so jump on your bike and take a hike in the World of “Locked in or Locked Out”.

*Close ups and Macros would be preferred but not essential so long as it has a taste of “Hard Rubbish” in the subject matter. Also, please title your work and add a brief description as they always complement your image!
