This is a picture of a wind mill on the way home from a hike we took.

I did a levels adjustment, then to parts I did color levels adjustments and saturated the colors of the sky.

Pretty good composition, too bad the image suffers from too much noise, did you try to despeckle in PS? Consider a tripod and lower ISO, and also straightening the windmill.

Some noise reduction and more contrast would help this shot a lot.

Meets the challenge, but is lacking a bit in technicals. Good job of following the rule of thirds for the placement of the windmill but it looks as if it may be a bit underexposed which makes it noisy. If you take it into photoshop and use levels to deepen the darks a bit, you'll lose some detail in the ground but increase the contrast and enhance the color in the sky - it will have a lot richer look to it.

Nice colors in the sky, and I like the blur in the windmill blades to show that the wind is blowing.

Great idea. Maybe a little sharper would make this
work even better.

Thats a a good shot but seems a little pixilated.

The image and location were well selected but the images is a little soft of focus for my taste.
