This an excellent example of the range and versatility of a camera. You've selected the exposure and speed quite nicely to capture an image that has a very varied lighting environment.

A tremendous example of making a two-dimensional medium reflect a three dimensional field.

Color &
Lighting
The colors are beautiful. The lighting is natural, and clearly had to be anticipated and addressed to make the image brighter than the natural lighting would allow without careful artistic work.

An image that is sharp where it needs to be and faded where it needs to be. Very nice.

How to improve your photo
1.
The only coloration decision that might make this a more striking image is to darken the yellow channel slightly so that the lighthouse doesn't have quite the hotspot that it seems to have.
2.
I wonder if a slightly wider lens, maybe even a slight fish-eye would make the curve of the line out to the lighthouse pop even more than it does.
3.
Darkening the shadows might give a greater darkness to the water, and thus compensating for a slight reduction in the brightness of the yellow.
