• This was my original crop. But then I decided the pylon made it feel even more desolate, and like Amy wrote, gave it a sense of scale. But tell me if I'm wrong.

    keep seeing the thumbnail without the pylon and it looks so cool. so I'm going with cropping the pylon. That's my final vote. and post more silk road!

    A good capture! Looks like a film billboard.
    I do agree with the need for a crop excluding the electric pole.

    the layers. Personally, I didn't notice the pylon in my initial glance. I like the photo and I don't mind the pylon. However, when I block it off, I like the simplicity without it.
