I think if you boosted the contrast just a little it would be very dramatic. Maybe do it on just the sky. Very nice picture

You pretty much nailed it, but I think DX6490's suggestion to up the contrast is a good one, though my taste says to do it to the entire photo.

(You can please all of the people some of the time, some of the people...)

I like this shot.
Although I think the Lighthouse would be better positioned in the upper left or lower right of the frame and I would lose the white surf that meets the rocks as it makes the eye wander from the main subject (try covering white surf with your finger on the pic below and then look at the picture) Add a touch of burning in on the sky. As for adding contrast, it does not need it. Sometimes you can over do contrast but this picture has a perfect range from shadow to skylight. But that's only my opinion.

You make good points, but do remember that the challenge was high-contrast b&w.

???? ... Like I said "sometimes you can Over Do contrast.
This picture is full of high contrast, but then that would depend on your interpretation of High Contrast!

This week’s challenge is to create a black-and-white photo from a color original, trying to get high contrast (well-defined blacks, whites, and shades of gray)
Well, if the said picture is not High Contrast and containing well-defined blacks, whites, and shades of grey I better book that appointment with the optician.

If you up the levels of contrast much more it will be detrimental to the overall balance of Black, White and the full compliment of Grey's contained within the picture.
Anymore contrast would burn out the lighter sky and lose detail within the shadows.

As I stated the levels & cropping are only what I would do had I taken this excellent picture Do remember that.
Sorry if my comments have upset, not intended. I'll stick to just viewing in future.
Regards Jimboy

I think you misunderstood the intent of my comment as I, apparently, misunderstood yours. I thought you were saying that the contrast had been overdone.

No need to go into hiding. Everyone's opinion counts here.
