I'm gunna say yes. But more so if it was just the wood with less background noise. But that is just me. Nice shot.

I think it can, but I would recommend some contrast tweaking and curve adjustment to bring out some more character in the wood

I think its a very interesting shot and I like the background because it gives some context. But I agree that the wood is a bit flat and could use some contrast for depth. And I also agree that the vignette is too stark and softening it would give it a better look.

Did you post this one in color a while back? Or one very similar? I remember it because I liked it andit got me thinking about getting a really wide lens. I do like it in b&w but agree about the contrast. Those that I've converted always need more levels adjustment than it would normally need if it were in color. I love the intesting wood.

I think this is a good classy shot that works really well.

I agree that the wood needs a little contrast boost now it is in b/w, but I would also remove the white buildings in the background as they are a little distracting.

I do not see any noise in the photo. THE BACKGROUND WAS A PURE BLUE SKY.
