One from a beach, the other sailing through one of the largest offshore windfarms.

Comments on both most welcome.

Which do you prefer?

Second works best for me. They are too small a part of the picture in the first.

Better than nuclear! Can be dismantled and removed in future without having to wait hundreds of years!

Hundreds of years? No. Most nuclear power plants were designed to operate 20 years then be dismantled, dude. And I agree that wind turbines in bodies if water are a horrible idea, environmentally and economically because of high construction, maintenance, and impact on the water ecosystem.

I think I like the first one better actually, but have you considered cropping it to be more of a panoramic? The sky isn't bad, but it isn't as interesting as the water or windmills themselves. Great job! I like the blue/green feel to these.

Thanks chexjc. I thought this one better too. Actually combination of two shots with differing focal points - hard to get much DOF at 400mm (200 + 2x extender) handheld!

I like your pano crop suggestion:

The plant might be fismantled but the spent fuel rods are sn issue for decades.
