Wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2006 03:58:52 AM
great edit, but I find the chopped off fence at the bottom distracting...perhaps if you positioned yourself so that little path led to a view of the windmill, it would have made a more interesting composition...I am not really one for 'in the centre' compositions unless it is warrented, but that's just me. the sky looks good, and the sheep add to the shot as well

04/21/2006 05:25:02 PM
I can feel the storm moving in! Wonderful shot.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/21/2006 05:03:56 AM
Really nice, I quite like the sheeps on the lawn and the color treatment. I'm perhaps not absolutely sure but I somehow feel the sky is a bit overdramatic for my taste. Still it's quite a cool picture. Good luck!
