great shot.........lakes is about 90 mins drive from here.....one thing that i think needs doing as my eye caught it straight away is the quarry in the distance that the last post touches, maybe clone it out as it distracts from the otherwize great image

I do appreciate your taste for your choice of setting for the B&W work... On the other hand, I totally agree with Gary's comment about the last post on the quarry. As a matter of fact, I had viewed this photo a few times, and each time this issue slightly disturbed my eye. Maybe rather than clonning it out completely, you can assign it somewhere to the right so as to bring a strong vanishing point to the image reinforcing the sense of perspective.
Well done, _dan!
