I like the last one - the patterns and symmetry make an interesting image out of a not very exciting scene. I suggest the symmetry would be enhanced by cropping the right side to match the left.

I like the b/w image very much. The others are not quite so satisfying, imho.

Dutch landscape is quite flat and using a wide-angle lens stresses that.

the clouds overhead were quite imposing and a strong wind was blowing

Yup, the first one is a wall-hanger.
Despite missing foreground object ;-)
Light attracts the viewer to the center, but the water is asymmetric, so I guess that gives it enough of tension to make it work.

sRGB clipping sucks and Adobe RGB is just as bad  Still no clue how to take decent pictures though, see afximages.com ;-(

I am much more interested in the second one, with its minimal display of the ground and the emphasis on the bvery heavy sky...
The last one is perfect for me.

had been thinking of a redo of the second to fully emphasize the cloud formation
which was pretty awesome
maybe the last one should be in uvir forum
or the non-existent creative edit
thank you Olivier
