    Thanks Bruce,

    The human brain seems to be able to perceive depth with narrowing lines.

    The shot was taken with a 32mm prime lens fitted to a Nikon D200 at 1/640sec and an aperture of F9. The time of day was not exactly what I would have liked.

    Nice perspective! The space at the top doesn't add anything to the image or the depth perception for me, so you might want to consider cropping to eliminate about two-thirds of it.

    Thanks Mike.

    Don't you think a crop will make you loose the feeling of power lines running above you, and the mood of the changing colour of the blue sky?

    The power lines are looming so much in the distance that including them in the foreground doesn't add anything for me. Another way of saying that is that though the crop I suggested would loose the feeling of the power lines above me, that feeling isn't important to the photo. Yet another way of saying it is that I think you need to decide where the viewer's eye is to be drawn -- upward or toward the distant horizon; the photo is presently trying to do both, which for me is ineffective.

    Almost all of the color change in the sky appears relatively close to the horizon, so the little bit that changes in the top part of the photo is a lot less interesting for me.
