This is the more photographic one of my city's two modern windmills. She is called Ilona. She's much louder than what you'd think.

Shot in NEF (RAW) with my new Tokina wide-angle - I'm loving it! - and boosted up saturation in RawShooter. In PS did a little Curves & USM and resized to DPC dimensions.

I shot a very similar photo for the Progress challenge.

These turbines do make great subject matter, and the sound is incredible.

I like the clouds in your shot. They provide perspective and context. Well done.

I like the DOF, the white is well exposed and goes nicely against the blue sky :o)

I can't give a photo of an object that produces clean energy a low score and the little cloud gives the photo a nice touch.
