Although I like your image I do feel it would be even better if you cropped out that bit of fence post on the left (and perhaps also the fence on the middle right ??)
Hey Dick, be careful with the word 'crop' around here!
Perhaps "fill, content aware"
... but as to your suggestion -no, I think the out of focus post on the left retains authenticity for the shot and keeps it on a personal level, rather than a stock photo of a 'nice' scene. I would leave it in definitely.
