A composition well balanced with the "watermill" well located in the image. Nice natural colours well collected too. Simple but beautiful.
Have a good week,

Water this is indispensable on a farm, no water no farm.
Happy that the nature us can give wind and a windmill, a very old principle, but very efficient
You chose a splendid angle, we get a lot depth and fantastic perspective, also a nice panorama view about the slope.
Very well done, TFS.

Very interesting scene of the work of converting forces of nature into something that can benefit us. Water water everywhere...

A simple but expressive image, showing one of the main reasons for people settling here in the first place: Access to water!
A balanced composition with good colour reproduction...

I am on the road again--in Dallas for several weeks.
My grandparents had a farm in Northern Alberta.Water of course was indispensible.
I like your minimalistic compo here. Nice natural colours. Lots of depth to the shot.

I think this type of watermill not found in my country, good framing to make it at a side, greenery field and blue sky all together create relaxing feel, thanks for sharing.

Very nice and simple image, very nice and clean, not too much going on, but the composition is perfect here with the wind mill perfectly placed. The light is very nice and soft. perhaps you can give it a little bit on contrast to punch it up a notch for better impression. Simply beautiful image in such a natural and down home environment.

A nice composition with the tower off centre. I do like the added contrast in the WS. It adds a bit of pizazz if you know what I mean.

The last time I saw one of these was in Vermont, not too many around any more.
Good placement of the mill, good sharpness and the contrasting
fall grasses showing signs of retirement for the coming winter.

You have captured this beautiful lonely scene very well here. Nice colours too.

a very nice shot, simple composition, but extremly well presented. I would have problably pushed the saturation and contrast a bit more, but you already saw what you can make out of this shot in Way`s WS, it is a beautiful picture, many thanks for sharing!

Estupendo PoV y encuadre.
El paraje, seco por el tiempo otoñal salpicado por manchas verdes de la vegetación hacen un interesante contraste.
