magnificent lines in this shot - have you tried viewing with the road cropped off??

thank you Nodster!!
it was a tossup - I cropped without the road at first, then decided to leave it in

Try cropping the road and the concrete pillar and light on the left off

I tried all and didn't like the look;
the pillar definitely stays it anchors the photo against the splay of the cables - I may distort the pic a little to make it look completely vertical
the light pole gives a sense of dimension - I took it out and it lost all sense of size perspective
when I crop out the road - I lose the fade to the horizon look that both the road and the white line create
if anything, I would remove the pole on the right side - it does detract from the cables and probably clone out the wires criss-crossing the cables on the right
