First off, this is an interesting and different picture. May I humbly offer some suggestions though...

Firstly, the angle chosen is wonderful, but there's some chromatic aberration that's visible even when the image is small (see: edge of pulley circle, pavement, branches) - try shooting in RAW as this is the kind of stuff that should be easily fixed or reduced in post-processing through RAW-editors.

Also, I would have preferred if the entire pulley wheel was visible - as it is the top part of the pulley touches the edge of the frame. A little bit of space above the edge of the circle would have helped the composition to improve.

One final thing, it seems that in the top part of the image, there's a greenish colour cast around the pulley ring... seems a bit odd to me and in terms of that I can't offer any suggestions as I don't know what could cause such a colour cast in one specific area. Maybe some more experienced togs around here can shed light on it.

Despite my critique above, I still think this deserves a vote for its originality. Well thought.
