I'm just starting to step out of my comfort zone of photographing flowers and trying landscapes. My sister loves lighthouses and I want to give her framed photo for Christmas. So... I bundled up & ventured out into the cold weather yesterday to snap a few.
The grounds at Fort Rodd Hill closed at 4:30 and sunset was around the same time so I was hustling to get to a good vantage point before security would have to remove me. (Not really... but I was cutting it close)
I forgot my tripod in the car so I set my camera on a rock ledge, pressed the shutter button and hoped for the best.
I am happy with the results but I feel it could be better. Would you please add anything you think would improve on this image in post-processing?
I would gratefully appreciate the help and critique.

What a very pretty lighthouse, Sharon. Lovely moment for your capture, too, with the faint evening color coming into the sky and the day's end lighting on the tower.

WOW!!! Thank you very much Michelle, Mary Beth & Nikki. I certainly didn't expect such a warm and positive response to this image.

I am a lighthouse lover too Sharon and I can't see a single thing to make this image any better than it already is! Your lighting is magical and your composition is stellar!
