Nice shot - Like the tones - Nice summery feel to this and I like the composition. I think some more saturation in the sky could have added some more drama.

Ah Lighthouse Point! First off this is a good picture but there are several things you can do to boost the visual appeal into the above average or exceptional category. Using a higher aperature (6.1 or greater)and lower ISO (50-100) will give better details in the ripples of the waves. Second, portions of the palm trees and the top middle section of the lighthouse is too dark to make out any details - again that could be corrected with higher aperature and lower ISO but be careful with shutter settings. You might want to bracket to see which would be the best shutter speed & aperature setting combo will give you the finer details as well as a more evenly exposed shot. Lastly there needs to be more to the image than just the lighthouse to give it an extra visual boost - a boat going by or ship or mayhap this could be taken at sunset with some beautiful sky colors. Hmmmm, I don't know if the posts are still there but sometimes the pelicans roost on them. Another suggestion is if you could get into a position that has a pelican sitting on a post in the lower right portion and the lighthouse in the backdrop you could get a very beautiful shot. Focusing on the pelican and setting the aperature to an 8 with a low ISO for better detail should get you a wonderfully dynamic depth of field.
