A stunningly beautiful and calming monochromatic image.

A nice image reminiscent of the old B&W days. Having for years waited for colour, I often think the modern thoughts about displaying shots in monochrome go ove rthe top. Here again I would like to see the windmill against a nice blue cloudy sky.

I would also like to have seen all of the blades or arms in the frame but here you have chopped off the lower bit. The position within your frame I find good and very viewable. What might have helped for me, as well as including all of the arms is a slight upward tilt as here there does seem to be a very slight downward one, tilting upwards into the open part of the frame would greatly enhanc ethe viewability in my opinion.

Your aperture is acceptable but personally I would have been using f8 and around 1/80sec.

I agree with Frank about the camera settings and not chopping off bits of the sails. I would also have liked to see the mill smaller with more sky. It would give a sense of scale and emphasise the relationship between the mill and it's environment.
The angle of the mill could be rotated to make it 'look up' more.
I find it more peaceful than dramatic, which is not what I suspect you intended by emphasising the clouds.
