Oklahoma Windmill Farm at Sunset



I took this photo at one of those windmill farms near Ft. Supply, Oklahoma. There must be over a hundred of these huge windmills, there - they are quite a sight!


This image was actually taken a little before sunset, looking directly into the sun with the towers silhouetted. The original image was considerably underexposed, but while playing with it in Adobe Lightroom, I changed the white balance to "tungsten", bumped up the exposure by a little over one stop, and this was the result.


I think it looks more like a moonlight photo than one taken in the daytime.

Mike ... You always seem to have solid local articles and great photo images, like this one of windmills at Oklahoma.

That is really cool.  Your editing is just as great as your picture taking.

Thanks, but the goal is to need just a little tweaking.  This kind of major overhaul means I screwed up when I originally shot it!

I do appreciate the kudos, though.
