Near my home is a dike with four windmills. They are restaurated and still in operation. On a sunny winters day, like in this picture, they present some of the most beautifull examples of engineering and architecture perfectly blending into nature.

This is such a beautiful and serence image. You can almost hear the birds singing and the wind rustling through the grass. I just adore windmills and this is definatly one of my favorite images now. I agree with you about such beautiful architechture blending into the landscape. I really feel that they represent the way life should be. Slow, deliberate and smooth movements through life, silent but making such an impact. Truely lovely work.

10/10! Like a picture from a book, your composition and color are excellent. Even the clouds cooperated this day!

We make a living by what we get; but we make a life by what we give.

Picture postcard perfect. Well done, Paul -- another fine example of your wider angle images.

Wonderful photo. Colors are good. I like the angle of the four subjects in a row. I appreciate that you included the little building beside the tree.

It looks like something you would see on a puzzle box (that is a compliment!) I'm so glad you didn't center the windmills, but instead put them on thirds, it makes the picture much more dynamic.

Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.

Great compositio, great light. Watch the sharpness - take a look at the edge of the windmill against the sky. It loses the warmth of the photo - IMHO.

Mr Gerritsen, I wholly concur with your views. When you consider the non-environmental, bland, and unimaginative buildings of modern civilisation, windmills should be looked at and reconsidered for use today. Your photograph is great and exudes a strong sense of nostalgic romance.

It's better to have a living dog, than a dead lion.

Makes a perfect picture postcard. Wonderful clarity. The little house catches the eye and that tree too. Wonderful work you do...

The simplicity and beauty of this scene is inspiring. The composition, the clarity and colors and angle are tremendous. Bravo!
