Nice series, I'm from Sussex (East). Would you mind listing their locations? I think I recognise a couple of them.

I really like the moody atmosphere of #1 and #7. Well done!

I love them all

One subject, different perspectives

Having the children bring us back to modern world works really well :ugh:

Just great

I like them a lot - every one. A couple of the B&W ones remind me of the '30's era monster movies - very moody.

Number 1 is West Blatchington which is on the outskirts of (north) Brighton grid ref: TQ 279068

Number 2 is I think Oldland near Keymer and Ditchling grid ref: TQ 321163

Numbers 3,4, and 5 are the Clayton Windmills Jack and Jill which are north of Brighton and within sight of the Oldland mill. Their grid ref is TQ 303134

Numbers 6,7,8 and 9 are of Halnaker Windmill near Chichester and Goodwood. This one sits on top of a hill in the middle of the South Downs and is probably my favourite. The grid ref is SU 920097

Sussex seems to have an abundance windmills, I used this website to plan my route

My favourite one is the one of my youngest daughter launching herself of the bench because it reflects her character perfectly.

Other people have also likened that one to horror movies

Thank you all for your kind comments

Something that kills alot of them is you are cutting off parts of the windmill. (I understand you may have wanted to cut part of the windmill off on the closer shot) And post production seems abit over the top on most.
6 is my fave.
