Very good, especially the composition. However, once again you took the deadly shortcut and failed to use AA or Anti-aliasing. This is not a habit you want to get into. Bite the render time bullet and ALWAYS use AA because the render looks incomplete without it. Best wishes!

I love this scene, it has potential to improve the quality,if you wish. I won't dwell on AA-ing, which you ought to engage in the render options (last arrow at left). The lighthouse beam serems a bit large angeled, I'd expect it to be narrower. What bothers me more is the hard edge. There is usually moisture at the sea. There is more than one way to do this. Either use a visible massive light with soft edges or use a cone with some fog material. Three examples:

Then there is the sun (or moon, as the colour suggests) with hard edges. Use haze in the sky lab. This gives also a feel of distance.

I hope I'm not too much smart-assing. I do not intend to belittle your work. I want to help you improve.

Beautiful scene!Most of all I like your way of doing composition, but as for me beach on the left is a bit overilluminated, You could decrease a little intensity of radials You used there, it is not criticism, just friendly proposition. Wish You good luck!

Thank you all for your comments. Horo, I looked at the images links and see what you mean. I used "Torches" in this scene and most of my other water scenes. I don't like the effect from them at all. Gotta do more experimenting, thanks for the tip, it is greatly appreciated.

Sometimes you guys get me confused, lol. One says to never use AA, then another says always use AA. Confused, but ok.

Thanks for all the tips, I'm still in the learning stages and have a long way to go.
