Splendid scene! The dark sky and waters frame the lighthouse perfectly. The orange glow gives some welcome warmth and helps to outline the lighthouse.

Nice composition and mood. Perhaps a bit more muted orange sky (i.e., less contrasty and saturated) would better suit the overall dark and ominous mood? In other words, the orange sky to the right of the lighthouse to be more like the sky in the leftmost side of the picture? Just a thought.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Slobodan - I hear what you're saying and maybe I'll play around with that a bit. However, I kind of like the crescendo, if you will, of color intensity from left to right. Just kind of pops the whole image for me.
