Yes, it is true, scene captured in small and picturesque village – Araishi.
Windmill is authentic object with full interior as well. Tourists can attempt to mill some grains...
In my opinion Holland windmill at Latvian sunrise – superior composition...

Hi Ivars... you woke up early :D
That's a good compo, the sky is beautiful.

First i thought you catch this scene somewhere here in holland, but no, in Latvia.
Very nice scenery with perfect silhouets and colour toning in the sky. I like how the orange/red colour is shifting to the blue with the clouds in it.
Really nice picture...well done..!!!

This is SOOO beautiful! A windmill and sunset go well together so well! I really love how the blackness of the windmill contrasts with the pretty colors of the sky. Well composed!

AK - MANS - DIEVS! Fenomenāla bilde! Apkritu, ja tā var teikt... ;)

Yes, it does have a Dutch look, though I suppose it's a general nothern Europe look. PoV to catch the objects against the sunset. The place sounds interesting, maybe a bit like the museum just north of Riga.
EOSF1 (1944) 2006-04-11 23:45
Wonderful picture, a true classic. I like everything in it ! Excellent work, a masterpiece. Thanks Ivars.
rakeshgupta (2672) 2006-04-12 4:00
This is a great composition. The background sky with clouds of different shades is looking great. The windmill is giving good appealing to the shot.
Thanks for sharing this great composition.

I like the sihouette composition, realy nice point of view, good, great sky, well done that low horizon, I like your Holland mill, good job.
john_c (24666) 2006-04-12 10:48
A superb composition, with warm ambience and alluring silhouettes. The clarity of the arms of the mill is outstanding and your POV, framing, and use of the vertical format really makes this shot sizzle. Congratulations on a wonderful shot.
Gerrit (52081) 2006-04-12 13:03
I see that you are preparing for your Holland trip already.
Good picture, great sky.
Thanks and regards, Gerrit

tjanze (5674) 2006-04-14 3:31
Beautiful silhouete of windmill.I like sharpness and excelent light.Bravo!
starbug (6924) 2006-04-16 11:51
hi Ivars, a gorgous shot, i especially like the fact that the mill is only a black shape, and this contrast with the beautiful sky makes it stand out perfectly. really well composed, and wonderful light.
zeca (19762) 2006-04-17 2:58
Hello Ivars! What a nice silhouette! I like the POV so much, making the windmill bigger from down in the first plane. Well done!
All the best!

Kinderdikj in Latvija, this mill silhouette is a fantastic added value to the sunset view, well seen !
Have a nice day,
pierrefonds (66889) 2006-04-19 16:51
A good POV on the windmill with the sunrise, the phot has nice colors and a good composition.
srpablillo (225) 2006-04-22 6:17
This picture is very nice. I like your choice to take the mill's siloute and conservate the sunset colours. Great POV, sky and of course, the moment of taking the picture is the best.
AiresSantos (56155) 2006-05-15 6:44
Lovely sunrise with fantastic colors, good sharpness and depth. I like the silhouettes.
Very well done my friend,
s_a_s_h_a (607) 2006-05-29 15:31
It is excellent shoot, nice POV & composition.
Jeppe (18654) 2006-05-31 17:25
A very lovely view indeed - the mill as silhouette against the very special clouded sky gives an excellent background - my compliment - Jeppe
Emiel_Skyfreak (3002) 2006-10-28 20:54
I think your right. This seems like a typical Dutch windmill. And believe, I know..hehe..I live there.
Beautiful sunrise with a marvellous sky. Nice silhouette of the windmill and..that other thing there..(what is it?)
The clouds are great, nice warm tones.
Good composition with the windmill on the left.
The choice for a portait scape was pretty good I think.
What I see is excellent. Sharpness is superb.
Thanks for sharing.
