Yeah, here is another image of mine containing power lines. I am seriously starting to think that I am attracted to these things. Many photographers avoid them like the plague. Not me though.

In all seriousness, I do not seek out compositions containing power lines (at least not yet…I am considering it however). But, I find that they often add more to a composition than they take away. I guess it is all in what you are after as a photographer. To many photographers, they are a nuisance. To me, they provide nice leading lines that can help guide the viewer through the image. I am going to stick to what works for me and that is to not be bothered when power lines make their way into one of my compositions. I will continue to (at least in my opinion) allow them to work to my advantage.
