Happisburgh Windmill

By Jimbob
I took this shot of Happisburgh Windmill, but now think it may be one from close by to Happisburgh instead. If you know any better please let me know as I intend to return to take the shot again from a different perspective.

Sorry folks I have to disagree a bit on "composition" and "detail".. the overall composition is not bad, but there's a tree blocking the view of the windmill which is a shame and the image is rather soft, particularly on the large version. Perhaps a few steps further down the lane towards the mill would have cured the tree problem..
Hope you don't mind the critique and advice
cheers, Paul

Hi again Jim. I thought I'd put my money where my mouth is, so to speak, and modify a version for you to see what you think.
Obviously I couldn't move the tree(!) but have made a few other changes. Hope it's OK with you.
Cheers, Paul

I agree with Paul 100%. Just so we all keep it real here and not try to garner votes by creating a "you-click-mine-I-click-yours" club.

I have to add one more thing. There's too much text on the frame and that is very distracting.

That said, I still respect what you have done here.

So now were even commenting on how someone puts text on a frame, sure knew this was coming! So artistic preference is lost, whats next the camera one uses? At least Paul made a mod to demonstrate I'll give him that, but each of us has our own views on what works well and what does not, is that to be lost to a small minority! Sad, what about credit for what was done right? Does everything have to be so matter of fact! Sorry Jim, your shot was not the right place for me to make this comment, but I had too, but I should be commenting on your shot.

You have a good solid shot and a foundation to build on to do as you see fit, I like the detail and your perspective of the scene! Spot on! Click!!!

Hi everyone and thank you all for your comments on my presentation. I agree on the text issue and have taken note. The shot was a winter shot and because of foliage growth, couldnt be taken at any other time of the year.

I was pleased to see your renditions of my work, and enjoy seeing them all. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my work.

rustic looking countryside scene, nice skies as a backdrop. good exposure and tones too. very nice work. Presentation looks good to me, but that's not important. Important is it looked good to you, that's all that matters. Keep it up and just 'flow with your heart'.

The large version of this has much detail and makes a very pleasing image. Well done Jim. Paul's version makes another pleasant alternative.

I like the warm glow that you get into your pictures.....the tree was there, so thats how the scene artist painting the scene may have moved the tree, but then it would not be a true representation of the view.
Well done.

I missed the windmill I guesst the lighthouse all I had eyes for. I like the overall fell, but have to agree about the tree, literally a couple of steps would have got it off thw tower.

Your collection of windmills has fascinated me and I am happy to see a new one---the skies are always so interesting--and I like the sort of sepia tints---I look forward to seeing your images---Thanks, Jennnnnnn

As you know Jim, I love the colouring in your shots, they always have a hovis feel to them Wink Sorry, I couldn't think of a better way to phrase that. When you go back, I would maybe suggest heading about twenty yards towards the mill on the left side of the road. I think that might nail it for you. The mill's angle will be different, which is a shame, as I'm sure that's what you were going for, but it should cut down on the invasive branches. Failing that, I have a friend in the tree surgery business I can send around for you!

I agree that this shot had to be taken at this angle at this time of year. The leaves would be in the way in the summer and if you moved to the left, you would not get the fence and other details would be lost too. Good one.
