Thanks for looking & thank you for your critique. It was a very high contrast scene; the sun was high and harsh, when we drove past this fence line by chance, a now or never opportunity. In any case, I though the high key B&W worked to emphasis the starkness of the scene. I experimented with cropping some of the left side & and I do like the more off-center subject. By way of contrast, here is another picture from the same fence line, which I also found interesting, but not as compelling as the B&W.
