Nice but with room for improvement.

A few steps to the left would clear up the overlap in shapes between the tree and windmill #3.

You could easily increase contrast and simultaneously colour saturation to enhance the inherent graphic nature of the scene.

Plus point for using IR for making pictorial images.

Not that i could ever achieve such a result, but i tend to agree with Bjørn. Also, moving in slightly closer (while moving to the left) to increase the apparent distance between the two left hand wind mills.

Great image none=the-less!

In Germany, due to the similarity of the poles of the wind mills and asparagus sticks, these wind farms are called "aspargus fields". That is the little story behind this picture, but I agree, not easy to realise for a not German tongue.

Fons, Bjørn and Hans, thank you for commenting!

Any part of an inch to the left would have pushed the tree/bush right in front of the wind mill (it is far closer, than the wind mills) This was the only possible position (with just the "touch"), were I also got the field in the front left some how to extend till the horizon. The only better position I would have liked, would have been from a ladder, to keep more track of the structure of the little "hills" (the landscape to the horizon was going uphill) (and it was part of a little training, to get the picture full frame without later cropping, running around with only one lens).

With the higher contrast: yes, that is an option (and I will give it a try!), but I had the feeling to support the intended subtle joke above, more subtle colors would fit better.

I don't think I'd quibble about the tree too much. It does offer balance to the trees on the right which 'touch' the border as the lone tree on the left 'touches' the windmill. It is all the angles and diagonals in this scene which are so interesting.

I might see what happens if the background clouds are lightened a bit. Their rounded shapes along with the trees make for a nice soft freize along the horizon and in contrast to the other straight lines.

This is surely a cool scene to shoot again in the future and see what interesting compositions you can draw from it.
