I think you have too much information in this shot; it might have been better to concentrate on the wire and fence post without involving the turbines. There is marvellous texture on those posts, and impressive rust on the wire. The wind turbines are a distraction, and if you ever visit the site again a different view point may be worth trying.

If you can, go back later in the day so the light is less from the top and more from the side. This will enable you to make more of the textures on the post. As above, either forget about the turbines and concentrate more on the post, or take a slightly wider view so you get the whole post in the frame.

Also, look around the borders of the frame - that small tuft of greenery on the RHS is distracting.

Lots here to photograph if you look closely enough, on the large and small scale.

JPatrickM says "too much information" and I agree there is in the pic...but not enough in your description. It's hard to give constructive critique if wedon't know your intentions. As an exercise in depth of field? .. fine. As a juxtaposition of rustic and technological? not so good as I think the turbines would need to be in focus.

The elements of the pic IMO just don't fit well together in the same frame. Even the small clouds (and I am a lover of clouds) tensd to compete and drag the eye out of the pic

Sorry if it sounds harsh, just he way I see it
