I feel this shot could be enhanced further
if shown in portrait mode to make good use of the reflection in the water foreground.

Hi Garry

Nice attempt, but I need to agree with Rock. Some potential mate, almost there.

I can tell immediately, the exposure is out a bit, and this makes the image overall quite dark.

Open it in Photoshop or whatever program your using and adjust the levels.

In Photoshop its, image, adjust, levels. Click on Auto to see the automatic setting, and it really brightens it up a lot. If you dont like auto, then just adjust the sliders (the black, grey or white triangles) until you get a level you like.

Also, a simple one, the horizon is a bit wonky. I got it to 0.67 degrees out, clockwise.

Image, adjust, rotate image, choose arbitrary, and enter 0.67 into the box, hit enter, and it will rotate it that much for you.

As I said, a good start, but just a little work and it will improve a lot.

All the best mate.

Tony

Other comments I agree with totaly! it was a very bold step to place the lighthouse in the centre of the frame, with the water acting as a lead in it works!
