    I see that you practised the rule of thirds and placed the closest windmill on the top left thirds. I think a slightly tighter crop would work better, perhaps by zooming in a little more. Maybe you could post the photo in vivid colours too. Nice attempt

    Its actually quite a decent shot. Only thing have to raise is the bleached sky. May be you could try using a a CPL or Graduated ND filter to get the details lost in the sky. Alternatively you could try HDR.

    Agree

    Can be slightly more careful of the foreground too. Some stray grass at the bottom left.
    Overall, like the shot. Keep shooting and sharing

    it was really a gray sky, with almost no details so i decided to just bleach it rather it being just like a 20% gray haha but yea i think i could have tried HDR. perhaps next time i go netherlands! thanks for the comments
