Windmills are a compelling landscape subject but I was looking for a different point of view that provided and interesting form and a compelling shape. I place myself near the base of one of the windmills, got down on the ground and pointed my camera up. The 10mm wide angle lens compressed and converged the lines of the windmills. I was pretty happy with this but I wanted a way to emphasize the line and form of the image by removing the colour. To the left is the progression of edits that I did to eventually get to the image I wanted. The first one is the colour image that I got out of the camera and even though I shot it during a sunset the colours were not that interesting and I felt that they distracted from the form and shapes inherent in the image. In the second image I did a high key conversion in Silver Efex Pro and I got a nice B&W image but I had lost the interesting circular shape in the sky. I pulled back the brightness and increased the contrast but I ended up with an image that was completely dominated by the circular shape in the sky so I pulled back and found a middle ground. I was happy with the shapes and lines so I decided to add a blue tint.
