Welcome to Photo.net!


I really like the silhouette of the windmill and particularly the way you have captured the setting sun beneath its legs.

The composition is a bit stretched, a lot of blank space in the middle and bottom half of the image.

The various elements of the photograph are all very well communicated, but I feel you would have been better zooming in to get fuller proportions of the windmill and the building to the right into the frame.

All that being said its a great first posting and I really look forward to seeing more from you.

Very well done!


Best Regards

Congratulations on a well taken photograph. A great effort and I like the placement of the sun just under the windmill. I do however feel that there is too much black at the bottom of the frame. If you crop a little of it out and tighten up on the main subject of the windmill I think this would be even better.

Welcome to PN.............

You have had sound comment from those above with which I agree. For my 3-pennies-worth, might I suggest a title rather than a file number.

A noble attempt............ look forward to more.

Best regards

Ignace, welcome to PN.  This thumbnail caught my attention to make me want to stop and comment.  Nice positioning of the sun -- it really draws the eye to the windmill.  I'd suggest eliminating much of the black, maybe about 90%.  I think that might make the gap between the trees and the windmill seem like a more positive feature, especially because they are connected by a fenceline.  A crop would also reduce the nearly 50:50 split between ground and sky, and it would get the windmill out of the midline.  I think such a crop would improve the aesthetics of your current composition.
