I never see green clouds before little too much over processing!

Thanks a lot to all my DPC friends. After the recent DQ of my first blue ( due to a silly and unnecessary processing mistake, and I am still smoking about it) I am extremely delighted to get my blue with this picture now. (I am holding my breath until my original is being confirmed, but I made sure not to violate any rules.)

On Saturday, the 1st January I noticed on the Dutch weather forecast, that the traditional overcast sky should be clearing briefly and I asked my wife and 2 friends to visit Kinderdijk ( //www.kinderdijk.com/ ) with its old windmills. I was not disappointed. The sun was out for only about 1 hr and luckily I was there to take advantage of it.

Thanks again to all of you and letís continue to have lots of fun.

This scene has a cool mixture of power/energy in the sky, and calmness of the landscape.

I find the lighting to be very good here. Nice and golden! ohwever the processing is over done. No texture remains. Way too smooth.

yet another well done sunset, where there is more to look at than the sunset and the clouds. The contrast of the plants and the windmills really makes this shot for me. Thanks for sharing.

I am always in awe of windmill pixs, because I have nothing around me so nice to photograph.. So I have to sit and study these because I tend to go ooo ahh and award a big score, But, after sitting and studying this I STILL have to award a big score. This photo feels alive, it pulls me in, the more I look the more I like it! 9 and good luck to you
