    This telephone pole get's my attention every day and today the clouds looked puffy and added to the effect of the picture...not sure which I like yet.

    I like the first one best. Great contrast.

    The balanced contrast on the first is great. Left side with the bright sky and dark foreground and then the right with the dark sky, it is very interesting to look at.

    The power lines and light-to-dark really lead my eye through the photo.

    My only negative point on the first is that either the poll looks a bit soft focused, or perhaps there was a little too much photoshop work done on it.

    Here's a couple more of the first one with almost no photoshop work done on it.

    A) basically no work done:

    B) a little touching of shadows, contrast, and unsharp filter:

    Thanks for the comments!

    Really like the first one as well. The texture, the contrast and sky are really doing it for me!

    I have had this idea myself a few time but my results were nothing like this. Very jealous! :)

    I like the second, the third turns me off. I like the idea of the silhouette for the last one, but it doesn't quite do it for me.
