Not a bad shot. I'd clone out that ugly bush in the foreground though. Also, I'd clean up that one window that has some sort of distracting object in it. The lighthouse is really sharp though.

Because the foreground has the same marble effect all over I just copied another part and blended that in, the window I used the clone tool. this was all done in Photoshop CS3.
