I like the photo so much , especially the full dark part behind the trees , the milestone is like a gravestone and the darkness behind reminds me of death . ofcourse this is only a simple description of my feelings and not whole of it :)
I think a little crop from bottom helps so much , the bottom grass isn't helping to my thought . do you have the same feelings about this photo ?!

@payam: I've just looked back at my original photo. The original has more foreground with the kerbside edge too. I cropped it to retain the dandelion in the bottom left, but yes you are right; if I had cropped it closer to the bottom of the milestone, that would have enhanced the macabre aspect of it.
