Hello zwiegea, Your observation about being proud of the lighthouse, building and spatial placement is correct. In addition to those components, this image has a neat compositional device which invites the viewer into the space: The foreground post. Generally, it is rather dicey to place such key elements on an edge of the picture; but, in this instance, it works. There is a degree of trompe l'oeil in the post which isolates it somewhat in its own pictorial space but the rope attached to it cancels that. Be careful with the quality of line as a means to describe space. In some areas, for example the bottom of the main building and its walls, the line is too dark or decisive. This makes it come forward an go flat. The same with some of the tones, for example, the two large windows in that building, could have been less dark. All-in-all, well done. Your perseverance has paid off handsomely. I see that you have posted another image. I look forward to commenting on that soon.
