Pretty good shot, but a few minor adjustments would make for a much stronger image

Lighthouses are very popular subjects and can be quite photogenic

Composition
& perspective
Good idea in using rule of thirds but the image does not feel quite right. There is too much empty space on the left and not enough space on the right, so you should have moved over a little and put the lighthouse more in the middle of the frame. Also feel like there should be a little more sky above the lighthouse itself too.

I would have tried to use a smaller aperture (at least f16) to ensure a large depth of field in the image.

Hard to tell in this version how much is in focus, but need to make sure that all the foreground and the lighthouse is in sharp focus.

Color &
Lighting
Colors seem a bit dull. I realize that it was over cast, but in post you should have adjusted the images' vibrance to make the colors pop a bit more. Also I would have shot the lighthouse in the morning (if this was shot in the afternoon) or vice a versa. The light hitting the side of the lighthouse looks really nice and would have preferred to see more of the lighthouse lit with a smaller portion in shadow.

Seems to be in focus

Description
I was trying to convey the isolation of the light house against the darkened sky.I was using the rule of thirds to help me do this.

How to improve your photo
1.
Give lighthouse more room on the page
2.
Shoot when most of the lighthouse was lit or even better wait until ambient light is low (as sun is setting) and you can actually see the lighthouse light as well as sky and grass
3.
Make colors more vibrant in the image
