Second time I’ve shot this one. Photo taken about half an hour before sunset.
While walking around Mylapore, Chennai, I went by this little flour-crammed mill. Mechanically operated it was run by the rather dusty man to the left.
Shot on a tripod at f/10. I was unable get further back as I’ve promised not to go into the field just behind me. Also I was kind of annoyed that my camera somehow was set to .jpg instead of .nef. Luckily I was bracketing (not HDR) and was able to combine the images using the excellent tool “PhotoAcute” into a working 16-bit TIF.
The image itself is not a HDR shot – only tweaked in camera raw.
A single 8-bit jpg file would not provide me with sufficient data thus I needed a 12-16 bit image. (I usually shoot in 14-bit .nef (Nikon raw file)).
There is a trial version avaiable att www.PhotoAcute.com , do check it out :)
Built in 1838, this mill is situated in the village of Skabersjöby in Skåne, Sweden.

A repost; 04:11 last night, Skivarps Windmill got burnt to the ground by an arsonist. I took this photo of the beautiful windmill a couple of years ago.
Skivarps Mölla brann ner till grunden den 27:e Oktober 2010.
Inspired by my photo yesterday I decided to revisit two more windmills today; Kyrkoköpinge Mölla and Södra Åby Mölla. – I was unable to mimic the shooting position in the latter case as it would’ve ment me standing waist-high in snow :D.
There are plenty of old windmills in this region of Sweden (Scania).
This region is famed for it’s fertile soil and it appears impossible (for other Swedes)
to understand our dialect :).
(In Swedish the word for mill is “kvarn” , in Scanian, however, we say “Mölla” (The letter “ö” is pronounced like -eux in the French word “deux” meaning “two”.)
