    The balance of light doesn't feel right, given the reflections off the foreground rock. Were the cliffs/stack that devoid of lighting? It feels like you dropped them into shadow.

    The sun was rising over my left shoulder so the cliffs were in shadow.

    I'd open them out just a bit, but on the stack, possibly moreso if it is the main subject.

    Have to agree that the foreground and the stack/cliffs seem disconnected because of the disparity in brightness. I'd lift the shadows, not much but enough to make them feel less isolated. I'd probably darken the sea slightly too, something like this quick fiddle...

    Definitely better.
