When you first open your photo you think to yourself it is a bit under exposed, but when you increase the exposure to lighten it, it loses its appeal. So I don't know about this one yes it is dark and also flat but I do sort of like it.
I tend to agree with Dereks comments about the overall flatness of the shot, also for a mono lighthouse sort of photo I would have been looking for a bit more life in the sea i.e. stormy weather.
For me it is a great shot of a great castle, have tried many times to get this castle but never got a shot that comes anywhere near to yours.
The major problem with mountain photography is getting what you see and feel onto the photo through the camera, and unfortunately as in my case I have a awful lot more failures than success.
Great photo, from my personal point of view is that I would crop some of the sky, (see uploaded mod) or if you have the quality in the shot I would consider trying the isolate the photo around the area of the tree.
Because you don't have a lot of interest in the bottom half of your shot I feel you need to bring that lovely African Sky into play. I would consider cropping some of the lower part of the photo, and lighten up the blue in the sky ever so slightly. See uploaded mod so show you what I mean, have also added a little bit of blue in the water.
Yes you are right great light, and just right for the house & tree. If I am right then it is at Elgor so I would have moved along the beach which would have enable you to compose your shot of the house and mountains without having to consider those rock. Have uploaded a mod hope its alright.
You have a lovely photo waiting to be found, if you live near then it should be a spot where you will need to come back to till you get it right.
Nothing wrong with the general composition and the tec side of things, maybe in a ideal world there would have been a old boat docked at the pier, but lifes a bitch.
Where is it shot? it as a feel of Scotland.
Afraid I can't get my head around the blue? cast, why not straight B&W, if the conditions and light is not right it does not matter what filter you use, (As someone once said you can't make a omelette without eggs) it is just a case of getting back out there and trying again.
