Hello Friends TL.
I'm back.
Here is the first picture I present to you my little trip. Here the difficulty was to avoid people in front of the beautiful landscape that I wanted to capture. Sometimes I succeeded.
Thank you for your visit.

Very nice wide angle view.. I like the wall on the right leading in to the shot.

I feel that this is a little under-exposed - often with such bright subjects as these windmills the camera metering system is fooled into wrong exposure. I'd set +1.0EV for this scene and check the result with the histogram.
Also just a little bit of vignetting in the top left and right corners - could be cloned or cropped out.

Otherwise - a really nice photo..

Hello Daniele,

Bon retour, c'est heureux et d'un seul coup d'ailes de "moulin" que te voilà rendue à ta maison.
Excellent angle pourpour ce sujet de moulins.
Je te fais un WS pour cadrer plus serré tu me dis si celà te conviens merci et bon Week-end.
Amitiés. Yolande

HI Daniele,
Welcome back and hope to see some interesting contribution from you in coming days :)
well about this shot,its POV is lower which works beautifully to give good details of the windmills,the lighting seems to be harsh but still managed with exposure and the darkening in BG sky gives beautiful gradient colors,well captured and beautifully presented.
Best Wishes

Bonjour Daniele
Très jolie première photo de ton voyage .Belle perspective sur les 3 moulins avec ce POV en contre plongée.Belle lumière et beau contraste des murs blanchis à la chaux sur ce ciel bleu.Bravo Daniele!Catherine


This is a very good photography with beautiful composition.
Very good chosen point of view.
Excellent sharpness, colors and use of the natural light.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hello Daniele,

You have chosen a fine pov to capture these windmills which includes the wall, for a good leading line, and the windmills, receding, to give a fine sense of perspective. The bright red, on the centre winmill, just adds a little vivid colour.
Nice, sharp focus throughout.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Danièle

On peut tout de suite constater que ton voyage fut fructueux au niveau de la photo. Et quelle chance tu as eu de pouvoir capter ces merveilleux moulins sans les perpétuels touristes qui envahissent ces iles merveilleuses.

Bien vu et techniquement parfaite

Bon weekend

Hi Daniele,

Good use of the wall for a lead-in. The combination of wide angle and small aperture has resulted in excellent DOF. I see what David is suggesting regarding exposure, his advice is very good. TFS

Warm regards,

Bonjour Danielle,
Jolie présentation de ces moulins à vents et jolie perpective ,
beau contraste et lumière,
Belles couleurs et détails de ce magnifique endroit..
