That is cool - I like that you made the top sky darker and the top of the blades lighter to convey the wind blowing out into the sky. Interesting idea. Good luck in the challenge!

Great image. Nice coloring and silhouette affect. Great lighting as well. The coloring of the clouds create an interesting feeling.

Very nice contre-jour....

I wished the trees in the bottom were not there and that the arm of the windmill wasn't cut off on the right side. Other than that a wonderful shot. I love the contrasting rain clouds and open sunny sky background. 8

Great colors and use of contre-jour. I'd like to see the top part of the sky lightened a bit so we see more detail in the upper part of the windmill.

Perhaps converting the whole image to purple would be effective as well. (I'd like to see a sample later).

Nice use of a longer exposure to show motion.


Composition: It could be better but I can also see you were trying to line up the sun with the center of the windmill so your options were fairly limited. Nevertheless, the oblque lines created by the fin do create some nice drama in the shot.

The challenge: This definitely fits the challenge. Furthermore it does so in an interesting way.

Nice to see that one of these windmill pictures is actually showing some spinning motion. Good job! Love the sky and light going through it.

I like this one. Good foot placement. I like the way you put the sun behind the mill.
