I had to crop this close, because it's a small garden ornament about six feet tall. I had to spin the blades by hand.
no wind that day
just caught the sunset in the background

I would be surprised if this doesn't finish in the Top Ten.

Good idea. Even though the colors are a touch over-done, they lend a surrealistic feeling to the spinning windmill. Clean, translucent, magical, wind powered, love it.

never thought a windmill can look like a cd disk :) I like it.

Beautiful tones you've captured here. I love how you've captured the motion of the fans. Composition is perfect as well. 10 from this voter.

Very nice

Nice shot. I really like the smooth look of the blades. The long shutter speed made the blades look nice, but the sky is just slightly blown out. Good job!

Yep, that's windy! Nice color - like the way the clouds seep through on the right side.

Meets the challenges well and is very creative in coloring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I would have liked to see the crop a little less tight. If it has to be this tight I like that it's equal though. Nice shot one of my favs so far.

Less border, more windmill. Cool shot, good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/30/2006 07:48:31 PM
GREAT Idea. Color a little strange for my taste.
But beautifully composed and striking angle. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/30/2006 02:57:48 PM
nice colors, and use of long exposure. maybe a little oversharpened (can see some halos)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/30/2006 11:06:03 AM
This is my absolute favorite shot in the whole challenge. I would give a 20 if it were possible. The motion of the windmill set against the amazing sunset rules the day. The cropping is also excellent - the top of the blades and the top of the circle missing increase the visual.

great shot, with great colour and a pleasing comp. Shame it's let down by a bit too much noise.

Another great wind in motion image here..... well done.....

EXCELLENT, LOVE THE COLOUR
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/30/2006 12:36:52 AM
Excellent placement within the composition. The hue is soft but I'm picking up a fair amount of noise and haloing on the rudder. Other than that, I think it is a great effort and worthy of a 7. Good luck!
