I know that these powerlines in that height carry very high voltage in the scale of Megawatts. We got them here in Greece too.
I think the inclusion of these powerlines in the specific photo were to be avoided simply because they are not totally clear (being hided by the clouds partially) so their effect on the photo is on the negative side. At least if they were totaly clear I would say it is just OK. Anyway they can be taken off easy with some pot processing.
Though I want to focus on another part of the picture that I personally consider more important that is:
I observe some nice mirroring of the land on the water , but it is partially cut towards the favor of the sky. In my opinion this is a fatal mistake, not interms of human action, but in terms of natural enviroment. I say "fatal" just because it is more rare for all of us to get pictures with nice mirroring on a totaly calm water.
I think you should have taken the photo showing all the mirroring of the land on the water and cut part of the sky to the favor of mirroring.
The strong point of that photo, is not the sky, is not the cables but instead it is the mirroring which is partially ruined in the favor of the other two.
Of course, I'm always expressing personal opinion and while you have asked for critique of the cable lines, I thought it would be constructive too, to go a little further and speak of what is the main point according to my opinion of course of the specific picture.
