A really great frame filler. Rust, peeling paint, a tiny rusty padlock. What's not to like?
Super shot, with lots if great textures

Love it - flaky paint and texture with a bit of rusty hardware for good measure.

Were you by any chance exploring the very limits of compositional possibility, Mick, or merely making sure that the padlock didn't get left out altogether?
As it happens, I like the extreme composition.
Interesting textures and lines, notably the way the sheet of corrugated iron was added askew; and the classically-correct number of rivets attaching the hasp to the door Smile
Well seen, Mick, and I do like the composition!
Regards
Bill

Lots of pictures within a picture but the whole is great full, of great textures and detail but not a lot of rust.

A terrific study of neglect and decay Mick. I don't know what AndyLea means by a "ceacker". Is that a Scottish word?Wink I guess we'll never know now as he's 500px'd off this site!Sad
