    I've always wanted to get some beautiful silhouette shots.. and I was walking home from my friends one day.. and I looked at this fence and the powerlines from a different angle than usual and realized that it was my chance!!!

    Enjoy~

    I think you made good use of your "chance" - particularly in 3. That one I personally like best. Improvement MIGHT be a crop (or could have been a somewhat different composition), which will (would have) moved the fence post to the very left and let it be a kind of frame within the frame, and if only on that one side. I haven't tried it as yet (I sometimes do "monitor crops" by putting a piece of paper to the monitor to see what it looks like, or by scrolling away that part that I think ought to be cropped), but something tells me it would be less "heavy" there.
