It looks like an old capstan to me for tying ships up, but I may be wrong. Anyway I like how you have composed this shot with these three vertical elements all helping to give the image depth and helping draw the viewer into the scene. The lovely sky makes a splendid background, contrasting well with the grey stones. Excellent technical realisation.

Excellent photo with very nice vivid colors.
I like very much your composition, adjusted superbly in the vertical frame. The architecture of the lighting tower is most intriguing, with unusual features and textures. You are presenting it with great perspective from a well chosen point of view and making marvellous use of the foreground and background to provide a comprehensive and attractive context and fill the frame with interest. I love the comfortable clarity, the beautiful bright colors, the fantastic quality of the light and the effective contrasts. Congratulations and thank you! All the best, have a lovely week.

Stephen is absolutely right - this foreground object is a very old capstan - a winch worked by hand to pull on ropes, perhaps to draw a ship nearer to the side of the quay. Long wooden spars were inserted into the holes near the top and men would walk around, pushing or pulling on those spars to make it rotate. Ropes were passed around the lower part of the capstan and so the ropes would be tightened as it turned. You can see details of a capstan here.
A very fine picture in which we can see two lighthouses, each perfectly placed in the frame and with the old maroon capstan taking pride of place in the foreground.
A fine wide angle shot with some lovely colours, fine bright light and excellent details.

This is a fine composition of three "towers" of various sizes and shapes and at various distances. Although the distant green lighthouse is small, it matches the purple capstan very nicely. (I have now learned from other critiques what a capstan is, personally I didn't have a clue, now I will just try to remember this). The three structures form a nice triangle, looking so much better thanks to the good light and brilliant clarity of your photo.

there is a lovely clarity to this image. the blue sky with the hint of white clouds is a wonderful canvas. the inclusion and placement of the lighthouse is perfect, while the object in the foreground (for tying up ships ropes i presume) adds extra depth to the image. excellent detail and sharpnes.
have a great week,

bello il taglio verticale per questa composizione, molto bello il faro con le vecchie pietre a far da sfondo all'antica banchina con quello che sembra un'antica bitta.
