Is there a good photo lurking here?

These bridge pilings reminded me of stonehenge, and I thought contrasted with the surrounding nature. I "fixed up" the original a bit, because I thought the textures in the shaded near piling were interesting and that that side of the photo, while needing the hugeness of the piling to impress it's strength, was too heavy visually.
What do you think--and, please, if you feel like it, go ahead and SHOW ME!

I was intrigued by the shapes and contrasts. I changed the look by stretching the canvas to the left and down, and adding some contrast to the 2 right hand pillars. A hint of clouds in the sky and darkening of the edges finished it for me. Hope you like it!

And the bubbles indicate the path of the Druid priests!

Nice original image! I pared down the piling on the left side and removed the one in the back. I thought it was better for line of sight. Then I gave it an old black and white grain, just for fun. I'm not overly good at Photoshop yet so my piling removal may not be the best. But I'm practicing. :) Just thought I'd have some fun with this one this morning. Thanks.

I do. You have made it quite powerful.

You have improved the composition I think. The left was too strong, the piling you removed urged the eye into a circular composition, when the idea works better as contrasting weights in balance. Thanks, and glad to have given you a shot of fun.
