We`ve just returned to NSW after a couple of weeks in NE Victoria where these wind mills are of course not an uncommon sight,watering the stock and making rather pleasant evening photos.
Our internet access is rather patchy so apologies for the lack of critiques.

Hello Leslie - Nice to see you posting, I hope you are both having a wonderful holiday and enjoying your travels. I like this rural scene, it speaks of wide open, semi-arid spaces. The windmills are a feature of our landscapes too and I think they tell a lot about the life of farmers and how difficult it can be to raise stock. A lovely rural scene with attractive, gentle light and a very pretty sky which goes on for ever. Take care and travel safely Rosemary

The delicate colors of this rural landscape, the iconic windmills give your composition a gentle laidback mood. The low horizon enhances the perceived immensity of this ranch. Have a nice day,

Always good to see your pictures, trust you are enjoying yourselves down there. I like the point of view here and that lovely sky. The warm evening light brings a calm and peaceful atmosphere to this pleasant rustic scene. Very good technical presentation as ever.

welcome back you missed the really cold snap last week then. This looks a lot warmer and quite idyllic. Tranquil and nicely composed in the late afternoon sunshine. Attractive and compelling image.
Regards - Brian.

Welcome back Les
I trust your sojourn in Victoria was a good one. This photo's a corker, with such beautiful colours and light that immediately tell me it is Australian. I like the Rule of Thirds framing and the pink tinge to the clouds is the icing on the cake. Just lovely, an idyllic country scene.
Hugs to you and Gladys
