Your photo has some nice qualities.
I like very much the shapes of the ridges. Your composition presents three layers very nicely, so that each contributes to the overall effect and the diminishing contrast with distance is great. The fog layer in the middle adds nicely to the moodiness. The outline of the lighthouse is also a nice component of the photo.
A few suggestions for improvement. (1) Many would find the lighthouse position too central in your frame. You might consider a version where you crop away some of the left side, so that the lighthouse occupies a point along the 1/3 line. (2) The photo is much more effective (in my opinion) if sharpened. (3) A minor consideration would be to increase the contrast to emphasize one of the photo's most interesting elements. I've posted a workshop that does (2) and (3).

thank You for your comments.
Interesting,almost B&W,photo;right combination of light and shadow.A bit lack of sharpness and I would crop out a portion on the bottom.
As for *rule of 2/3* that BilboCA suggested,I think,is not obligatory and depends on personal compositional preferences of photographer.

Belo contraste entre os topos das várias montanhas e o nevoeiro com o farol no centro

La luz y en especial la composición y profundidad de campo son formidables.
