Lovely compo.
But I think that the object about 2/3 up on the right spoils it a wee bit.

If you had taken a step or so to your left, and assuming that the sun's placement allowed, the lighthouse would have been clear of the foreground tree trunks and it would have stood out better. Also, if you decide to clone out the object at the far right, as Caffler has suggested, you might also clone out the piece of deciduous tree crown near the lower left and possibly the partial palm tree crowns on the left and right as well.

Thanks,
Unfortunately, had I stepped to the right the palm I was standing beside would not have blocked the direct sun and I wanted to avoid the flair by standing in the shade of a tree nearby. But I certainly can clone out more of the obtrusive items.
