I have experimented with windmills a little bit and realize the difficulty of this shot. I assume it is several layers but your processing leaved the grass and clouds detailed which perplexes me, lol. How were you able to maintain such detail with multiple layers? This is just outstanding work. I really appreciate this very much! Great job!

Behind The Lens

Location
This is the Drone Hill (Coldingham Moor) Wind Farm in Berwickshire UK
Time
This was shot at 4:20pm when the wind direction/speed and the lighting were suitable for the effect I was after from the limited point of view available.
Lighting
The sun light was low enough and at a decent angle to provide some sculpting light for the turbines whilst highlighting and detailing the clouds
Equipment
Canon 5D3, Tamron 90mm 2.8 & tripod
Inspiration
I had been waiting for sometime for conditions that would allow me to capture a series of images of moving wind turbines - I was looking to create images that suggested them working without the 'standard' blurred interpretation
Editing
The effect I was looking for relied fairly heavily on a series of post processing steps - briefly several 7 shot HDR sequences (all processed identically to match the optimal HDR output) with each sequence re -processed with differing de-ghosting values (to provide the variable blade densities). All images then stacked and blended in photoshop
In my camera bag
I carry Canon 5D3 an 7D, Sigma -70-200 2.8, 120-300 2.8, 1.4 tele-converter Canon 17-40, TSE 24, 50 1.8 Tamron 90 2.8, 17-50 2.8 Tokina 11-16 2.8 Manfrotto 55XPROB 498RC2 Head HiTech filters
Feedback
To use this processing method that utilises HDR de-ghosting find subjects with sufficient repeatable movement within the frame and use a very stable tripod! Identify images that have moving parts that can be successfully stacked to get the effect you are looking for e.g. the moving parts are much lighter than the background - that will allow you to use lighter blending in layers in PS
