    I'm not sure what to think of the wind generators.. so here's a version without them:

    Beautiful colors, especially #1 and #3. But don't delete the wind generators! They're a critical piece, and the photo is much weaker without them. It has a nice series of linear elements: near hill, power lines, houses, more power lines (could perhaps use a little more local contrast to bring those out more), hills, generators, far hills/mountains.

    Thanks, I like wind generators as well, although some might argue they're standing out in a "natural" environment, but with power lines and houses in the frame, I don't think they feel alien.

    Here's a Google Maps location if anyone's interested

    Especially like 1st and 3rd. In the 3rd one the windmills add so much and help lead you in - the image has a great feeling of space.

    I too think the wind generators are OK in the photo. However they also remind me that I think with these things we are replacing one kind of pollution with another.

    I like the layers very much Marin. The first is the best I have seen for some time, and the subtle colours too.
    Another vote for the wind machines from me. They give a sense of scale and lift your image out of the normal scene.
    Cheers,

    Very nice Marin....love those colors!
    Constructive criticism is always welcomed. I am here to learn. Just don't piss me off.

    Thank you all
    David, not a bad idea, but somehow the hill in the bottom left gives more presence IMO, it's not just a pretty landscape, but gives more depth and you *feel* more there than on a flat version... I hope it makes sense

    Marin, I don't think you posted the windmill version over at DPR. I actually like that one more. They sort of echo the powerlines and border a path for the eyes to follow. Still my favorite of the batch.

    You're right

    Anyway, here's one more which I dug out - even better IMO, there's another line of windmills in the top right
