Could this have been taken face on and loosing the buildings on the bottom left? For me, they tend to compete with the windmill. The composition and quality of the shot is very good.

Sad but the view from the other direction is not as good. I cropped out to remove buildings from the right side. Turning the camera took the mill out of it`s context. Not an easy one to shoot. Maybe better in the winter without the foliage on the trees and bushes.

Remembered the name Saxtead Mill but could not place it until I checked. Used to live at Leavenheath (A134).
Nice shot Cedric.

Thanks Tom, Leavenheath, a village with two pubs. Looking forward to a visit to York this week.
