What an incredibly sky! The colours and cloud shapes are wonderful and the way they lead down to the lighthouse is fortuitous and very effective. In this context I find the FG dark almost purple sea and rocks unnecessary and wonder if you'd tilted the camera up to exclude them and gain more sky whether that would have made an even more dramatic image? Hindsight is a wonderful thing as I so often realise sitting in front of my images on the PC Grin Cropping them out of this image so that even your dog head rock is excluded might be worth a punt here.

I do think that almiles' comment has some valid points, however I do not agree with the suggestions put forward. I think the foreground rocks act as stepping stones to the viewer and they too help to create a zig-zag across the image if one starts from the foreground and works his/her way up towards the clouds. As regards the dark foreground comment, I don't mind it at all, as I think it adds contrast to the rest of the image which is relatively composed of highlights.

The only comment I can make to improve this is to maybe tone down the sharpening a little bit - to me there seems to be a bit of an over-sharpening halo on the small pointy rock in the middle which is a tell-tale sign of such over-sharpening. This is not a big thing though and I absolutely love this regardless. Well done.

Finally, given that this was most probably shot on a tripod, I would have given this a go at an even slower shutter speed to make the water smoother and avoid distracting waves - I think the sea should have receded in the background a bit more here given the beautiful sky and its relationship with the distant foreground, possibly using an ND filter to get 2 - 3" exposure times or an f/16 aperture to use 1/6th second if you didn't have an ND filter on you. (The latter option would probably still not smooth out the crest of incoming wave on the left though).
