Maybe a bit oversharpened and that's cutting off 1 point on my rating, but otherwise quite good.

Nature isn't doing badly with the light, is it? I like the depth of field and the detail throughout the image. The glow from the lighthouse itself tones in so well with the glow on the horizon.

There is another photo of this lighthouse in the challenge as well....did you go shooting together? I've never seen pictures of this lighthouse before, I think it is so cool. I love the surroundings and the colour as well. One of my top picks.

Nice seascape. The texture in the water and on the rocks adds to the impact of the image. However, IMO, the processing is borderline overdone.
