colour fest or not! lol the toned/mono image works for me, a stark/different composition - good work

Brilliant, good to see a different take here. I've seen many from here(including myself) but none like this, well seen.

Version one for me Ade, I'm with Mr's different. Love the hint of light on the left side of each turbine

I agree ... I can see these from my doorstep too (if I stand on tiptoe and it's a clear day)

The first version works really really well and achieves what you set out to do, superb work. The second version doesn't have the same edge, although it is still a great image.

cheers folks - you've restored my faith in the world Smile

I geuss the people who would love the second shot have not looked at the first cause the thumbnail would not be colourful enough Wink

Lots of comments too - often says a lot when that happens Wink

V1 is a good original take on these modern monoliths. Smile
17 Nov 2008 10:29PM
I'm one of the people who don't like these things, but I do like this picture (Version 1). It all works!

I like them both for different reasons. I like the side lighting and mood (menace?) of 1, and the colours in the sky on 2.

Sometimes mate, you're just a bit of a ****ing cynic, aren't you? Wink

I like it.
But then, I'm just a miserable **** at heart.

Something very "Big Brotherish" about V1, and I don't mean that sh*t on TV! Kind of superior race if you know what I mean!

V2 is very pretty too Wink

I like the horizontal lines in the clouds with the vertical turbines against them, the composition of the turbines, almost in pairs, and the fact that they are all different sizes.
18 Nov 2008 8:18AM
Great images both are brilliant - I like windfarms I think they add to our landscapes and are eco friendly hopefully Smile

Great pics Ade. First one is the best, with that brooding, menacing atmosphere. The limited colour palette works really well.

I personally like them, when I look out my living room window I can get an instant indication of which way the wind is blowing, if at all...and that's from an engineer that has worked in every fossil fuel and Nuclear power industry there is. Smile
V1 for me Ade, not keen on the sky colour or out of focus image of V2

Quote:out of focus image of V2

it may not have been sharpened after resize as I rushed it as a joke, but it's certainly not out of focus!!!!

Prefer the 1st image. A lot more dramatic and it "feels" more real. The 2nd image is slightly over saturated.

Gobsmacked this did'nt get a Pete Award so you'll just have to make do with mine. I don't care for V2 at all but V1 is certainly the best turbine shot I've seen in a long while.

Definitely the mono-ish shot for me (1). Far more interesting. The dark, brooding sky, the impression of cyclopean eyes all staring towards the horizon behind the point of view, and the good motion-blur on the blades all work together very well.

The brightly coloured one is, by comparison, just a photo of some wind turbines.

I like them both. The colours on the 2nd one are "nice", but the composition of the 1st wins for me

there is no doubt - V1 is the best - it is outstanding, original, powerful, thought provoking and makes the viewer want to hang around and study it for a good length of time. V2 though good does nothing for me and makes me think of all the other sunset saturated bright coloured landscape shots that everyone flood the galleries day in day out. i love something original and different and V1 fills my needs 100% - the type of shot that should be getting the EC's, HC's and user awards - not the done to death style like V2.
if i took up landscape photography i would aim to achieve a V1 type image any time any day.

i hope i havent caused any offense, none at all was meant by my words and now i will shut up because i am waffling Grin

I stand corrected Ade, should have read 'unsharp image of V2'.

Version two is a nice photo but version one is jam packed with mood, menace and feeling.
