Maybe it's a dumb question, but what's inside the windmill? Is it a generator or do they grind grain?

Very nice work, but I would clone out the white pole to the right of the cyclist.

Mooi! The pole should indeed be cloned out as well as the power lines in the background. Do you do any post-processing or is this straight out of the camera? Very Dutch image indeed with both the windmill and the cyclist included!

For the interested: windmills were the power plants of yesteryear. They were used for anything from pumping water, to milling flower, sawing wood, making mustard, making paper etc. They don't call a paper manufacturing facility "paper mill" for nothing in the US. Windmills were popular power sources all over the world, from Mexico to Spain and from Morocco to Norway. It is in the Netherlands they got so much attention because their pumping ability allowed the Dutch to reclaim land from the sea in monster projects as far back as the 16th century.

I'm at that stage that i do everything with picasa ... i get lost in all those buttons that photoshop offers ... so i saw those lines and the flagpole and knew they shouldn't be there .. but did not dare to etempt to remove them with my knowlage of post-prosessing.
I did crop a little and removed litte things that i felt could be removed ...

Thanks for the comments en the history lesson newmikey

And of course being such a flat low lying land close to the see provided (still provides) plenty of uninterrupted wind.
