Really nice light and composition.
I remember travelling for 3 hours to this location, only to find there was a load of scaffolding on the towers! Your photo has just reminded me that I must go back and try again Smile ........well when all this lock down is over!

I sure hope there's a railing at the end of this for those going too fast around the corner. A lovely image.

Question........a while ago I was taking very similar pictures of a local pier and lighthouse, got them home to discover the front of the shot was not sharp. I had focussed on the lighthouse. What went wrong?
Hi flowerpower59!
Focusing is a vast subject but there is a simple rule I tend to follow, without getting my calculator out!
Manual, or spot, focus on a point 1/3 from you, into the scene. I selected the little sign on the righthand railings. You tend to get much more in focus beyond the 1/3 point.
I tend to use an aperture between say f/9 and f/18 smallest when shooting landscapes. Go beyond, up to f/22+ and your image might become soft throughout. A lot depends how close the foreground is.
I was shooting from 15-20ft away on this occasion, with a longer lens to compress perspective, bringing everything closer together so f/10 was fine.
If you're not sure try several aperture values and check them out later on a bigger screen.
I tend to use a tripod to maintain my composition while doing this.

Hope this helps you.
If so please nominate me for Constructive Critique via the green button.

Happy shooting,
