Mike Nesbit submitted this image taken in the early morning in Wyoming using his Nikon D40, at f/5.7 and ISO 800. To improve upon this image I would suggest a sturdy tripod and a cable release or remote trigger. Use a lower ISO to decrease the digital noise and use a smaller aperture to give more depth of field being sure to keep the windmills in focus. The beauty of this image is the sky with the silhouettes, cropping off some of the bottom of the image will alleviate a portion of the foreground that is not that important to the image. Expose for the sky and the silhouettes will be cleaner. If there is more room on the left of the original file I would re-crop it leaving a little more space between the windmill and the edge of the frame. This is a nice start to a beautiful shot. Landscapes take patience and time.
