I can't decide about the photo itself, quality wise, maybe some shake and bake. But I do love the composition myself. Thoughts? Maybe it's just that tree, that is a difficult item to see focus on, dunno.

Thanks Bobbie Joe. I never see it that way on something like a leading post. Now the post at the end, that could be cropped. But I believe you are talking about the front post yes? I am sure we'll get several opinions on that. And that's good, I'm looking for alternate views on the shot, thanks for your input!
I will say I try to balance, if I can get the whole post and I think it' suites the composition, I'll do so. If by getting the whole post, I get something I don't want, then I may sacrifice some of it. So for me, it's just situational by composition desired.
You may well be correct Karen. But you know isn't it fun to see if you can make something of nothing? I saw the jetstream, and while they'd messed some stuff up already for me, I just tried to embrace this one. Anyway, thanks for your input, I love hearing what others think.
Since you asked .... I find my eyes bugging out - one drawn up the fence line to the right, the other towards the tree on the left. I don't get the feeling that the jet trail has been embraced. I agree with Yves that the whole front post should be included. Not up to your usual standard! Just my opinion.
Doug, I share your confusion--the tree on the the left is great, as is the shadow around it, the far tree line and the fence. The trees on the right I can't quite decide on! I tried cropping them out but that takes out the rest of the fence line. Oh boy!
What's to the right? Could you have included more of the trees on the right?
One thing I know I don't like--the jet trails :frown:---yeah we've all been there!
Well, ok, I appreciate the constructive or destructive as it may be critique. It's ok, this shot isn't planned for my top 10. It was just a snap, that's all. My standards are ever evolving though, sometimes, they go the wrong way. haha.
But I agree, this shot will be on the cut room floor when done likely.
As far as what was to the right or left, I am not certain right at this point.
Doug: I have nothing against the fence, nothing against the tree and nothing against the exposure. Indeed, the tree to the left is acting as the center of interest.
Something tells me, looking carefully to the picture, that there is something missing to really catch the eye in this pleasant photograph. Something is missing, if you understand what I am trying to say.
I look at it as a wide empty space in need of that "something"
This is the best way in which I can express my feelings.
