This is a great b&w picture of the power lines..I know there are other power line shots in this challenge, but none of them even come close to the drama and depth of this picture..the light and misty distance give it a wonderfully graphic feel.

Best of the power lines and very well captured. Ideal image for b/w Bumping up.

Good B&W. Could maybe (very maybe) even crop a tad bit off the bottom. But it leads the eye very nicely.

slight;y oversharpened but for sure a great composition.

I find that the foliage in the foreground detracts from the simplicity. Perhaps a little could be cropped off?

This is a rare photo indeed. Rare because normally powerlines ugly up a picture -- but this is really cool looking! You composed this great. I love the faded elements in the background and the way they go up and down the hills. I love it.

Too bad it suffers from the 150k compression limit. I know there's nothing you could do about it so I won't score lower because of it.

Nice use of compressed perspective. My only concern is that the lines don't actually lead to a focal point as much as disappear into the mist. But I think this is a very good shot and the B&W treatment is appropriate.

I feel this is a bit too hazy and lacking contrast. nice idea, nice perspective and comp. 6

The best of the three powerline photos I have seen so far.

Nice composition. You've presented a mundane everyday sight in a creative, interesting way. I like how the towers fade away into the mist. A very slight suggestion for improvement, maybe cropping the top down just a touch, to like the top of the large triangle shape towards the top of the farthest right hand tower? Nice photo, good job.

nice choice to go b/w. I wish you had come up with a way to show less of the grass foreground

Very nicely done composition of a subject I assumed couldn't be nicely done!
