Criteria:

The theme this year, chosen by our members was 'Corrosion'. However, with limited opportunities to get out-and-about to shoot Corrosion, we have extended the theme to embrace the ideas of ageing, decay, dereliction, weathering, erosion,.... etc. Anything grotty! Also, the timing of the picture is not important so feel free to trawl through your back catalogue.
