Not too shabby. Nicely composed shot. Good work.

Great composition

Dont know your cam but can it take a polarizing filter?

If so, this would be a great shot to use such a filter.

My camera is a Canon A80. I am looking into your suggestion on a Polarizer and than will be my next purchase. Thanks for the advice and comments.

I'd rotate the pic to the left a degree or so to level the horizon and take the tilt out of the light house. Also, the sky and land are in near equal proportions. Using the rule of thirds, I'd crop the upper portion of the sky so that it occupied about 1/3 of the frame. A graduated ND filter would fix the overexposed sky and underexposed land, and the beauty of your wonderful composition would really show. Nice job.
