Considering my neighbour only bought this padlock a week before I took this shot,(about two weeks ago),I thought the rust was settling in nicely already.I returned today expecting to see more rust for a fresh shot,but he had cleaned all the rust off it !!

Is your neighbour making some sort of statement about your penchant for photographing rust, Mick?
What a spoilsport!

Your neighbour is a cheeky sod. I bet he cleans the rust of when he sees you coming out with the camera. Try a false beard Smile

As it has rained another 5 inches today (including hailstorms) I am very optimistic regarding future rust, Will take your hint.

We live in a throw away society Mick - perhaps he thought he was preserving the lock by doing this - at least he hadn't replaced it by another pristine lock - still, you got a tad of red here and there on it, so that's not so bad. SmileSmile

They have merely left you a few grot-spots.
Excellent focus, depth and composition, even though you're more interested in decomposition Smile
Nice one.

the planning that went into this
the excellent composition
waiting for just the perfect light
Your depth of field for clarity
Your mixing and blending of colour
In truth an outstanding image of the highest quality which would not surprise me if it was awarded the editors choice.

The tightwad buys cheap tat and it begins to rust immediately. Good of him to (unwittingly) support your habit, Mick. Had he bought qwuality you would have been waiting years for the first signs of "patina".
