    This is West Blatchington windmill, just up the road from us when I take Susie round the block. It has to be cropped like this as there is a lot of tree`s in the way and cars parked. Taken with the X-T2 + XF 18-55mm this morning.

    To my eye, the image lacks impact and drama. I generally shoot for drama, consequently I always look for same. For a different approach, you can add some drama by going with a high contrast, B&W. But if you are totally happy with what you have, then ... don't worry, be happy. We all see differently and shoot differently.

    Those pesky trees, power poles, cars, people, always seem to be in the way. That's what's nice about post, you can make them magically disappear. LOL

    I think Gary gave you some great advice (did I really just say that? LOL). I much prefer the conversion. Maybe go in and just a tad to the shadow detail on the windmill. Not much just enough to hint at the structure hidden in the black

    These all work for me. But, (the big but), I’d go for a lot more detail and a white sky ... the black(s) made be a bit too much drama, a la melodramatic, lol. But this is your photo, adjust to your tastes. How familiar are you with Affinity?

    Hi Gary, I am still very much learning with Affinity even though I have the book too. I like to try new edits and even go OTT on them.
