shot 1 is worth a framery trip. I dig how the bottom of the windmill just touches the hill.
comp, exposure colours - all well done.

Thanks Marko,

I would like to say that the windmill on the hill was deliberate, but I didn't necessarily plan it that way.

Having said that though, I did take multiple shots from different angles, elevations and focal lengths and just about every shot has the windmill just touching the hill. I think i must have subconsciously composed it that way

Yes, the lighting and color is really gorgeous in both shots. The windmill is outstanding as are the trees. Skies do not need replacing. Print these for sure.

Thanks Mate,

I wish I never did a sky replacement last year. Now you don't trust me :)

Definitely not a replaced sky. Is genuine (maybe a bit of dodging and burning though).

Well I donít know how I missed these. I donít think itís too late to say they are both beautiful. Very well done.
