    The subject matter is fine, but the light and colours are very bland. I think this one really needed a 2 stop graduated neutral density to make the clouds pop. As well, perhaps a touch more saturation in the grass/pump.

    I agree with tirediron, the colours are washed out and strange in a way. Also it appears strangely un-sharp/hazy.

    thanks guys. although I must admit that I don't know what '2 stop graduated neutral density' means. The haziness of the windmills was on purpose, they are supposed to be the 'new energy sources coming up', so I wanted them softer than the oilpump. But the colors were not supposed to be washed out or weird.
    So I'll give it another try.

    thanks again tirediron and Alex!

    Graduated neutral density filters (G-ND) are filters which while optically clear, have the ability to block light. This blocking ability is graduated from a maximum at the top, to completely clear at the bottom, allowing you to effectively produce an image with a 1, 2, or more stop difference in exposure between the top and bottom.

    You can see what they look like here: http://www.cokin.fr/ico3-p1-6.html

    What an appropriate title!
    I sure wish my landscape looked like that, all I see is oil, oil, oil.
    This picture gives a sense of hope that change is in fact in the air.

    pascal, where are you now on your journey?

    Reminds me of 'where in the world is Carmen SanDiego?'
