This is a great photo - very well taken and presented
A well composed and lovely scene. Very nice work. l like it!
Sorry to be the spoiler here, but IMHO this shot has great potential but there are things about it that spoil it. First the foreground detail detracts from what I think is supposed to be the subject, the lighthouse. Second the lighthouse itself is very dull and recedes into the background cloud. I copied your image and worked on it and came up with what I think is a better result. First I cropped out some of the foreground then with the blur tool set to a low percentage softened the weed a little. Second I selected the lighthouse itself using the lasso tool then lightened it using the dodge brush. Then I gave it a faux mount. Unfortunately you haven't enabled modifications so I can't post the result so that you can judge for yourself (you might think my ideas are rubbish). If you do want to see my version, just message me with your e-mail address and I will send it to you then delete your e-mail address immediately to protect your privacy.
The problem with HDR tonemapping (I'm guessing this has been done with Photomatix), is that on occasion it tends to muddy the lighter tones and destroy contrast.
If you were to put one of the original lighter exposures on a top layer and mask out the lighthouse and some of the sky, this would give it a more natural look.
