I don't think the poles and wire contribute to this image. In my opinion, they cause the composition to be unbalanced, with all the interesting stuff in the lower 1/3 of the frame.

I can't address the b&w aspects.

Hm, thanks for the reply,
if the title didnt imply it, the poles and wire are the frame itself, maybe I shouldnt have added the photoshop frame to this one..

I also think the horizon is too low in the composition. If you drag the eye down to the buildings and beach, there's a constant urge to look upwards. The whole just feels unsettled. The subject matter at the bottom has taken on a very slightly pinched look (converging verticals) for having the camera pointed upwards. You might be able to resolve some of these issues by stretching everything except the poles, bringing the horizon up towards Rule-of-Thirds placement, but may be hard to get it looking just right. More generally, I like the tonality and it has some good compositional elements, including the "frame" itself and the variety of lead in lines.

Cheers,
Tony

I like it. It has an older feel to it, not just because of the b&w but also the subject and how it is handled. I suspect the conversion is because it is too colorful and for that reason the b&w works well. I would do a slight straightening of the horizon using the light poles on the rights as a guide. Otherwise, I think it it a very good composition, one that would be a great addition to any fine art portfolio. My eye moves around and through it in an interesting way. Reminds me of shore scenes from Europe in the 50's.
