Post challenge:
Thanks again for your critiques and votes. I'm very happy with a 8th place finish and 6+ score.

I agree that the crop could've shown a bit more of the bottom but there was a tree blocking the bottom portion so I cropped as such.

Nice detail and color, but the crop at the bottom is disturbing me.

I love the colors and the windmill itself! Would've been a better shot if there was also some space below windmill. I gave you a 7!

Nice lighting. Crop is just a little short on the bottom.

Wow, I JUST photographed an Aermotor windmill in Alameda County CA. Not this one, though - the logo was just slightly different. Almost used it in this challenge, too! :) Love this shot -- it's better than mine. My monitor shows a slightly different color of blue around the blades of the windmill which is a little distracting but I won't vote down for that because I'm not sure I trust this new monitor too well.

Wish you hadn't cropped out the bottom part of the fan :(
