    Windmill + water

    Hi everyone. These days have been very busy. I was not able to work on my pictures

    Windmill at the Openluchtmuseum in Arnhem.

    All comments & critics are welcome.

    For me, I would like to see just a little more, or none at all, of that interesting looking house on the right.

    That little glimpse of the house makes me wonder if it was possible to shoot at a landscape ratio and show more of the overall scene. But there may well be some distracting items which you didn't want.

    The shadows are possibly a little on the dark side but I would rather accept this than mess up the sky colour.

    Thanks for your comments Geoff.

    You are right. On the right they placed and old toilet (not operational fortunately) just at the edge of the pond. I thought it would be better to keep it out of the picture

    I cropped out the house and a little on the left side to keep the windmill at the center.

    Hope you don't mind this crop and edit to lift the tones, Toņo -

    Maybe I went to dark on the brightness/contrast adjustment... I think I was probably influenced by the shiny area at the center of the mill, which I didn't like very much.

    Philip, your tone adjustment looks closer to the original condition of the pic, before I messed up with it.

    I didn't want it to looked "washed out".

    Have a guess :)

    Re: Windmill + water

    I'm wondering how it would have looked as a horizontal shot? (to reveal more of the setting that it was in)
