Not a great image for me Mario Im afraid.

The blacks in the image are completely blocked, - there is no recoverable data there, it solid black blocks; the sharpness is not there, - might be just the upload; the black border (my favourite subject!) is not suitable when you have so many issues with black in the image, try to divert attention, not attract; to improve the composition I would crop some space from the right; Its way too dark overall.

Ive uploaded a mod, but I would chose another subject.


Regards


Willie

There's potentially a lot of interest in this image, but it's spoiled by the processing. The tones are blocked up, which suggests excessive use of the highlight/shadow adjustment. Some of the light looks like it's grazing the surfaces, so there should be loads of lovely texture in the stone and those beams, but there is just the hint of it.
I'm guessing handheld again? If so, you can do worse than use a tripod, or at the least find something to rest your camera on, so you can take a long exposure without worrying about shake. If you could have used one here, you could have afforded to have used f/11 and a shutter speed of around a second, which would have utilised probably the best aperture for the lens, making everything beautifully sharp and bringing out that texture.

I'm with Willie here, I don't think this will run far in a competition.

Hi Mario, what this does show is interesting in as much as it shows how water and windmills transfer the rotary movement of the wheels,/sails to the mill wheel via bevel gears. To see the bearings and plummer blocks fastened to timber ie eye-opening especially to the uninitiated.

I would have another go at this one Mario as the interest and subject matter is there, it just needs translating into photography.

The subject potential is great, but you have lost all shadow detail. Those areas are solid black. May be your conversion, but you could do with a crisper image too. See it was a long exposure. May be slight movement.
