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

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.

Too difficult for the viewer to understand what the image is without the title. The picture seems out of focus and the angle of the hill doesn't work too well here.
