The Windmills of Your Mind

Here is another classic scene from farm country. Barn, silo, windmill. The only thing missing is a cow, or a pig, or a chicken - you get the idea.


Elvis has been in a bit of a rut using zhis 14-24 wide angle zoom lens for just about everything. But there was a ravine in front of this windmill and the only way to frame the windmill and the barn was by using a longer 70-200 zoom lens set at 165mm. The longer length also compressed the scene to bring the barn closer in.


Does it work?


Make with a Nikon D3s and 70-200 lens. 7-shot HDR at f/6.3 and ISO 200.
