Your something different works, Palms. I like the somewhat Victorian feel of the piece that you captured in the silhouette.

Re: Creative interpretations: Holland Windmill

Here is mine.

Started with a sketch, added texture, brought color back, added a few other adjustments.

Never quite looks the same when I decrease size. Will have to work on that.

Re: Creative interpretations: Holland Windmill

Starry, Starry night...

The silhouette of the windmill is so strong that about the only thing to do color wise is to play with the sky, so play I did.

Selections of the windmill and sky on separate layers. Duped then broke up the sky colors on the dupe using the pencil tool on a curves adjustment layer and merged the adjustment layer down. Ran a polar coordiantes filter on the result (which gave the vortex). Merged down to the adjusted layer below. Saved out a copy of the sky layer and took that into Painter and ran an Auto Surrat. Saved and brought that back into PS.

Made a Pattern Stamp of the windmill layer and painted with a rough brush to "paintify" (is that a word?) the windmill. Used Select Color Range-Highlights, to delete any white spill over from the PST paint brush.

I created a darker silhouette and added a soft neon glow. Then I replaced the background with a new cloud layer. Next, I tweeked the sunset colors in the clouds. After I combined the cloud layer with the windmill, I added a slight texture.

Re: Creative interpretations: Holland Windmill

this was what immediately came to mind

I was torn between showing the gorgeous sky or leaving the simplest silhouette.
I went for this.
