Hi Jose,

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).

Hi, Jose,

This is a nice feature of Trek Earth. You can "repost" your photo, if you like, after editing it. So, when you receive some helpful critiques, it is worthwhile to consider doing some post-processing on your photo, and then posting a new version using the "repost" feature. (You are only allowed to do this one time for each photo.)

In my few months on TE, I've reposted three photos, each time responding to a suggesting in a critique. And each time I've done that, the reposted photo received more positive critiques than the original.

Of course, you are welcome to use any of the changes I suggested. Or not. It's up to you!
