This is a really tiny version of the original 8968 KB Minolta Raw file. It is obviously homage to Adams' "Windmill and Thunder"
I like this scene and have photographed it with a view camera. In the summer, the complete shadow falls on the roof, and the vane shadow points at the rotors. This time of year, near the winter solstice, the sun is too low at noon.

Nice view, but small photosize and some dust spots.

try to explore a different vantage point, maybe shoot from underneath the windmill as an example. Image a little flat and the shadow is distracting me away (unless that was the attention) from the actual windmill - 5

This is a striking image for the challenge topic- I like the way the shadow is captured on the railings... creates this sort of Y shape. I think this might have had even more impact in a larger size - appears a bit small on the page. Windmills make good Perspective/Leading Lines subjects :-) I may have come in closer under the windmill to try and get it to loom above me more - but I would not have sacrificed the shadow effect.
