Greetings from the Critique Club

First impression: Unappealing snapshot with an odd white balance.

Artistic: If you're seeing a murky yellow sky on your LCD but see an orange sky through your viewfinder, something needs correcting. I like the gull balancing out the comp, but the main impression is flat and drab. Lacks the pop factor so loved here.

Technical: Good use of thirds and meets the challenge, but your ISO looks awfully low for what seems to have been very poor light. Also the viewer has to search a little to realize it's a lighthouse in the distance. Everything is just too small and too distant.

Overall: Not a bad attempt, but I think you need to do some homework on lighting and white balance. Keep shooting and entering!

Feel free to PM me.
