First Impressions
I like the extreme composition, unfortunately I think the geology isn't showcased quite enough for the Challenge.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Read your comments, indeed it could fit the Challenge, but I think you'd have to either zoom in further to show more geological detail or else include more in your frame to show the land form a little better. The landscape is a little dark, so difficult to discern the features or textures. A slower shutter speed may have helped there, but you may have created issues with the sky, framed as is.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
65/81 and 5.05 is not a bad score for a fair way down the pack.

You have some good praise in your comments.

A little dark for me to see the detail for this particular Challenge. As already mentioned, whilst I like the bold composition, there needs to be more context or more detail to discern the geological element(s).

A really interesting use of negative space and the natural curves of the land that all lead to the lighthouse. Really well presented here.

Think I'd prefer a little less sky. May look better as a panorama...7

This is quite interesting. You should shoot some more to see what clouds or sundown/up could add to he depth of this picture.
