    Which is better, what could I have done better? They are large images so I will provide links rather than post them in the thread. I tried to shrink them but I did something weird and it just degraded the quality and not the size.

    One

    Two

    Thanks.

    I like the idea of the picture but I just dont like how the whole windmill isnt there. You cut off a decent portion of it on the bottom it looks like. I would rather see less space on the left and maybe a portrait style of the windmill.

    I agree with Rip, I kept waiting for the rest of the picture to load. It's an interesting sky, but the windmill was your subject and you cut it off pretty bad. Vertical might be a good look for it, if you wanted it horizontal I would have shot a lot more ground.

    I love the first one, the second one is almost too 'dramatic' for me, too unreal. Awesome composition.

    Resized versions for all to see (I think this is better for web-presentation):

    I did nothing to them but resizing. So they are still ZyxKor's

    A pity about the cropped off bottom of othe windmill and so little fen to be seen. While I agree that the light was very special with a low sun against the white of the windmill ... erm ... whatever that is called (?) and the dark, kind of brooding clouds, it would have been nice to have a bit more "anchor" in the photo, and to see a little more of the equally nicely lit ground and plants.

    One day I will visit the Fens. That has been my plan for years now!

    2 is better for me...but yeah... get the entire thing next time. Cutting it off makes the picture weird looking.

    I really love the brooding clouds and the light.

    I was going for the clouds vs. arms of the windmill. I understand getting more of the Windmill, it does kinda make you wonder what the subject of the photo is. I have to try it again next time I'm there, though I'm not sure if I can get the same light.

    And a big thanks to La Photo for resizing my photos! :thumbup:
