A GREAT shot.

After considerable straining to find something remotely critical to say... I would probably consider cropping a lil off the sky, horizontally and for a more assymmetric composition.

Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Tarbini...

This is a beautiful landscape shot... As I stated in my earlier comment, I believe the colors here are extraordinary... great work with that for sure :) I believe that you may have intended your 'perspective' in this shot to be the livestock giving perspective to the size of the windmills... That works VERY well here. I can't really offer you any suggestions for improvement at all... I wouldn't have changed anything about the photo...

Great shot! Keep up the good work :)

This is beautiful! Very rich colors. The tilted horizon is great. The cattle is what makes the picture for me, as it adds an element of uniqueness to your shot. I know that for the challenge you're not allowed to do spot-editing, but maybe for the future printing services at DPC, you could remove that pole that is standing next to the fourth windmill (left-to-right). Good luck in the challenge!

Brilliant colors on this one. I love the composition, the subject matter....wish the sky was a tad more vivid, as is the grass....9

Good shot, but I don't see perspective used. Maybe go around to the bottom of the hill and shoot up along the line of these magnificent structures? Get closer or use a long lense.

Very nice colours and lovely composition. It's hard to see how a lot of people think wind farms are visual pollution!

WOW! Very postcard-ish. IMHO, the best of the challenge and my only 10. Color is outstanding! Framing is very good. Focus - very sharp. I like the cows meandering in the frame with their shadows. The windmills on the top of the hill, very, very nice! Nice contrasts. Did I say this was a 10? Swash

I like the contrast between the sky and the white windmills, and the green pasture. nice depth in the photo, and the cattle add a sense of scale and distance. the way the hill is sloped down and to the right adds movement and interest, and I like how it is doesn't cut the photo in half, even diagonally. Nice clarity. Job well done!

edit: My daughters critique (9 yrs old): It's colorful, and interesting. I like how the windmills are arranged, and slope down along the hill. I also like the cows.

Beautiful colors and wonderful composition. I like how the cows help to give some idea how big the windmills really are. Nice work.

Beautiful. I love the green grass and blue sky. It really makes the windmills stand out. Very nice composition. Next time tell that white cow to get out of the picture!!

What a gorgeous photo. I totaly love the colours. The blue and green are breath taking. Having the wind miils and the cows in the shot works well. Great shot. A well deserved 10. Jacko.

Nice contrasting scene, could have been framed involving a little less sky.

This is a great landscape shot.. I really love the color saturation in this image. I don' think that 'perspective' plays a really large role here, but it's a great photo none-the-less... = 9 - setzler
