Utility Poll

This shot breaks a lot of rules. Very busy, a lot of lines going nowhere, etc. etc. But, to me there is something powerful about it.
 
Interesting image...IMO, the problem is that there isn't enough tonal contrast between the pole, the wires and the utility stuff, and the background trees in the B&W image - often a requirement for a good black and white image. They just seem to all blend more or less together. Would be interested in seeing the original colour image.

Too dark for my taste.

Besides, I see enough of this stuff every day.
 
its def a little dark and maybe if the background wasn't so strong that might help. But i find it interesting cause its a mess up there and thats what powers r homes business lives lol

The original was very low contrast, almost faded looking. I popped the contrast and sharpness as much as possible.
 
Wow! Talk about leading lines. Leading everywhere.

What a mess! Most of the phone cables could have been lashed to the same strand. Ha Sorry.

Pun intended, I assume?

The idea of the image has potential, I think - you were trying to show the clutter & chaos, right? It doesn't quite work, though, I think because the clutter/chaos actually took control of the image away from you. Did you try shooting from below, looking up? Or some other different perspective - IMO the trees in the background interfere with what you were trying to show.
 
I agree with Blacksheep. To dramatize chaos it needs a something to juxtapose against. More chaos isn't it. A beautiful, properly exposed sky would be an excellent contrast to the ugly, utilitarian subject.
