    Early morning at Happisburgh lighthouse on the North Norfolk coast.

    I don't think that quite works. The breakthrough of the light in the clouds is a bit bright. One of those shots that needs a grad (or stronger grad if you used one) to reduce contrast and then some shadow recovery on the lighthouse.

    I think it is spoiled by the foreground, which is a complete disconnect. Think I would have been on the table in the middle.

    I do like your critique but I like the breakthrough of the light in the clouds helps to give it more punch and makes it more contrasty it was a much more lighter image .

    Thanks Mike. I kept the benches in to make the image more real.

    Some of the areas looked a bit burned out and banded. I don't know how this looks - it is cropped to lose the banded red area then upsized, which is not the best thing to do quality wise. I crudely lost the table in the foreground.

    Well that's a call you have to make when you're there and possibly revise when you're not. Issue is are you doing a documentary, reality record, or a creative view of something which in other light would be quite mundane?

    I went for a long exposure to set a mood but not to make it surreal. I have left out some parts of the image that would have made it look like a theme park, and i do appreciate all of the comments thank you
