The Windmill and the Giant

The Windmill and the Giant
The title was inspired by the novel by Miguel de Cervantes “The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha“.

What I like in this image is the “Giant” tree and the Wind-mill placed side-by-side. What I don’t like is the fence distracting the viewers eye; What you think?

Shot with FA-77mm f/1.8 (4 image pano), the tele-lens grabs (compress) the subjects in; there was considerable distance between the Tree and the Wind mill. If I used a wide, the wind mill would have looked far away and tiny!!

Well, apart from tearing the fence down (!) I don't think there's much to be done (apart from post-process removal).

The tree is magnificent and the link with Don Quixote a good one!

It's a great shot, but although I understand the concern about the fence, I suspect in a way it ties the tree and mill together. I find the other structures just left of the tree more distracting (and easier to remove, I would think).

Outstanding! I don't find the fence distracting. The mill and the tree are so striking that I went to them straight away.

Great title and shot Dynamo. A very nice shot indeed what not with the tree oversizing the windmill.

Stark and crisp in black and white; I think the tree will outlive the windmill...unless man interferes.

I agree: a beautiful theme. Nice b/w !
I wonder if it is not possible to take a picture in such a way as to have a fence and a tree on your right and the windmill on the left side - but you have to go over the fence, closer to the windmill. Then the fence will be visible in a nutshell, a frontal perspective. And you can crop. .. just my suggestion ... :-)

The tree and the windmill aren't spanish at all… but the idea is there, we can imagine a Don Quichote traveling in Holland! Yes, the fence… and what is behind… maybe some gaussian blur would help, then clone the herbs in the background to the foreground and patch the fence from the tree…. a hell of a job!

Any minor problem the fence poses is overcome by the smart use of the longer lens in compressing the scene into a great composition. A great, moody bw pano.
