the windfarm/windmills are really nice, good angle on them. but the powerlines bug me. but this is basic editing so they're there to stay :(

I don't know but probably it could be better if the left most "generator" was at the left border of the photo and cropping the photo taking away the sky above the left generator. Good subject and photo anyway!

where's the wind? maybe more impressionistic if the wind turbines had been going, or if you shot the blades in motion.

Is this off the 10 freeway in southern California? The shadows seem a bit too dark. nice angel.

Darn those power lines! Otherwise, pretty decent. Could maybe be sharper though.

I really like the lines created by this shot. Very well composed, and nicely executed. I would have like to have seen the color bumped up just a bit. Bumping up the score to 8.

This is really close to being a very good image. The problems are mostly not your fault, the wires cutting across horizontally. I think I would have liked the shot better if the angle caused the leading structure to be on the extreme left and the others to trail off into the distance from there creating a diagonal line from corner to corner. Those smaller ones in the back don't do anydthing but add clutter. My only other nitpik is that while these work with the wind, wind isn't evident in this photo. Maybe if the shutter were slower show some blurring of the blades?
Anyway, this is a good effort. 7

Good idea. A different point of view may have been better. I don't see any "wind" but the implication is there so you meet the challenge.

Loose cropping on this photo greatly detracts from its impact.

The wires screw up the composition something feirce. Also, a slower shutter speed would have captured the blades in mostion, showing wind. As it looks to me, no wind here...
