Excellent high contrast, Alan. I like the composition very much.
I don't care what the rules say, I like the noise in this image very much. It adds to the drama.
Great composition. Do'nt like the things, but makes for a great image. Peter.
Love the subject matter and comp and the conversion to B & W!
A rather spiky calm up top.
The only rule is that there are no rules.
Actually this has been cropped so the hub of the dominant 'mill sits exactly on the intersection of the bottom left third, vertically and horizontally, the upper blade of said hub points directly to the cloud which sits on the upper horizontal third and the bottom left block balances the distant ship. The black sea forms a strong base for the picture to sit upon and stops the cloud from making the picture top heavy. Mind you, it may have all just been a lucky coincidence. Si.

Very well composed and balanced image, Alan. love the contrast between the black sea and the turbines, perfect cloud location, great processing.
Like it a lot Alan, the cloud makes it
I do like a guid turbine shot and this is a very good one Alan . Si said it all , don't know what he is on about but he says it all Lovely image
I was in a hurry earlier, had to come back for a proper look.
I like the precision. Even the cloud seems to to posing carefully. And then there are those 'things', as Mollycat describes them. I've thought about them far more than about the turbines. I think I like them. They're the stink bombs that real life throws in to spoil the photographic party but they're real.
Congratulations on the GEA.
There are lots of these in South West Durham, and apparently they're very noisy for people living close by when they're working. Fortunately they don't seem to be working all that often, so the peace is only occasionally disturbed. Possibly the ones offshore take fewer days off. It seems they cost a lot, and only function within a fairly narrow range of wind speeds, and when they are able to produce electricity, it can't be stored. Perhaps there's more to it than that, but on the face of it at least they seem to me like a pretty poor solution.
There's a cloud hanging over a wind farm development in the north of Scotland right beside the proposed NationalPark in the Flow Country. Seems tome the developers have no idea of where to put these damned things.
Answers on a postcard to the Scottish Government please.
Your work this week has been amazing Alan.I love this one as well. It would have been an excellent image without that little square bit of wall in the foreground but the addition of this elevates this piece to a dizzy height for me. It's a piece that adheres to so many rules but disregards quite a few as well which adds to it's massive appeal.I'm very impressed indeed Alan.
A very graphic depiction Alan. Love it!
PS - when I scroll up and down past the image it seems the blades are moving! Clever stuff and yes, I do like turbines but not in the Highlands!

Well I think you've been at the 15yr old Single Malt, Ann. You're worse than Dougie.
Great shot, is this taken down the south gare ?
The North Gare!
...from near the end of the pier
A beautiful shot. You have a very nice portfolio with stunning B&W work.
Thanks for that, Walter, your comment is much appreciated.
