Keukenhof Windmill

By TrevBatWCC    
Taken from the Draw Bridge shown in my previous upload, and utilised the bridge to frame this windmill which stands at the northern side of the gardens, overlooking the tulip fields. Thought it suited a mono conversion; V1 is the original colour shot. V2 was taken from the same spot, but zoomed in a bit more. It's worth climbing the steps inside to the platform halfway up for the view overlooking the gardens.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, mono conversion in Nik Collection's Silver Efex Pro 2, colour tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile

It's nice to see the detail in v2, I love the even lines of the platform supports! But overall the mono works as does the framing. Pam

The lead shot and V1 are equally pleasing to me, and I do like the way you have framed the shots, Trev.
And the closer look in V 2 is excellent too.
