The quality of this image makes me think it was shot on a camera phone. I fear that will hurt you a lot in this challenge. Your idea, however, is fabulous.

Just a tad out of focus, so much for windmills as an alternative energy source.

I love the concept you captured here. Unfortunately, the image comes off as very soft and grainy.

The image is not sharp enough.......also, rules have changed that allows for 800px width.........overall composition also does not make for an interesting photo

I like this. It's more than a rusty shack or tractor. I'd like to have seen enough of the new to make it stand without the title, and more overall sharpness. But good idea. Won't score very high, though, I'm afraid.

As well as the focus issue, I'm having trouble identifying either of the objects clearly as windmills.....3

Honest assessment:

Dark colors recede. In this case, the foreground is dominant, but being a dark, unfathomable shapeless mass, one that is receding in the image none-the-less, it keeps me from entering the image properly. It is like I am held at the gate, so to speak, unable to enjoy what I might find behind it.

Bright colors capture attention. Your orange sky is acceptable but it pulls all the attention away from the buildings. One barely notices they exist because the orange is over powering the subjects of the image. One has to wonder why the buildings are there in the first place, as they supply nothing to the image - the image is all about orange.

The image is flat and static - all images are flat and static at their heart (its the very nature of a photograph) - but a goal in photography is to create the illusion of movement and depth. Here, there is no place for the eye to wander - I don't gain anything by moving around within the frame and only the barest hint of depth is provided in the clouds.

I'm not sure if you will consider this kind, but how can one learn or improve without feedback? This image is not a bad image; it has some potentially interesting elements within it. But it is not a great image either...

Interesting juxtaposition; a bit softer than I like overall.

Pity the windmill is so far away.
Nice idea juxtaposing the old and the new but think you could have tried a different angle.

Comment by Beetle:
You asked for honest opinions in a forum thread, so here goes:

I'm afraid it doesn't do anything for me.
The yellow is too unnatural, the dark areas are way too dark, the roof is borderline too bright.

The subject is interesting enough, but the composition is awkward. I realize it might be impossible to get into a different spot for a better angle, but the way it is right now, it just doesn't work.
