Excellent quality all round and I think the black and white conversion is great. The the movement blur in the crops is a bonus for me.

All rules of composition obeyed here. All elements go together to make a very satisfying image.

Best wishes,

Well done Graham. I've never managed to get a good shot of this windmill from the front.

Excellent composition, superb B&W, agree with David on the blur on the crops. Well taken.
