I suspect you were trying to make the wall a major player in this image. But the fact that we seem to be zeroing in on the distant tree as the central element undermines your good intentions. Go back and shoot it with the camera centered over the road, which will then lead mysteriously towards the distant, portentous tree. My personal pedantic rule is, if there is a path in the scene it had better darned well point toward the viewer. That will make everybody here happy, and you may be able to hide the pole behind the wall, saving many minutes of rubber stamping.
But I don't really mind the pole, and this picture is nice enough as is. Makes me want to go out and take desolate wintery shots that no gallery would ever want to show, but which would feed my inner Nordic Person.
