    This is the wind farm in St. Leon, one of my favourite places to visit and photograph here in Manitoba, Canada.

    I absolutely love the colors!! Wow. The framing is very nice... And from what I can see the subject on the left is silhouetted, great shot!

    Love the idea that you have here but I think we both know you could get a better sunset for this shot. It's still very cool!! I would love to see another version. I can see why it is one of your fav. places!!! Keep shooting!!!!

    The location and the colors of the sky are beautiful.

    Haha, I'm not sure I know how to shoot a better sunset for this shot :) (I'm not a "sunset shooter", though.) Do you mean I should've included the sun? If so, I almost always exclude it from the frame --I'm more interested in the way it changes the colour of things than in the sun itself.

    Anyway, here's a different crop of this photo, as suggested to me on another forum (and I like the results more than the original crop):

    Thanks everybody for the feedback, by the way!

    No, I like that you left the sun out of the shot but I would like the clouds to be more interesting. But it's your shot......maybe you didn't want a dif. kinda cloud.

    I like the colors as well. What were the camera settings for this photo?
    I also like the cropped version more. Have you tried to lower the exposure on the white clouds and blue of the sky? (selective exposure)

    Oh :) I wanted the clouds to be as soft as possible to go along with the purple tones, so I'm very happy with them :)

    Thanks, Pierre! The settings were: f/18, 1/125s, ISO 400 (I needed the high ISO to help freeze the motion of the rotors).

    A lower exposure on the clouds and sky would've given me a foreground too dark to bring it back in post. Do you think they need to be darker? Myself, I think they are already a bit too dark (as compared to the foreground).

    Then you did an excellent job! It's always hard to comment on art....;) You don't always have the same vision as someone else on the subject matter. ;)

    I always enjoy your creative twist on things!!
