Nice exposure but I would crop the top half and bottom 10% for a panorama look.

Nice, I know this place very well-Tres bien- je connais bien le port de Erquy/Breizh

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on my first visit to Erquy Bretagne, i just got a new lens a canon 10-18mm and was taken photos every step through the beautiful fishing village.
Time
It was the end of the day around 6pm in July, It had been sunny all day, but then it the weather turned very suddenly and my girlfriend went to join her family who live there, so i went for a walk around the port, and managed to get this photo.
Lighting
The clouds came very quick and were so dramatic. I don't think i made it past the lighthouse as i was drawn to it standing out with the dark clouds racing by behind.
Equipment
I took this on My canon 600d rebel with a 10-18mm lens
Inspiration
It was just the right timing really, I have since taken many photos of the same phare but none have been as well received as this one.
Editing
Yes I used lightroom 5 to darken the contrast slightly, boost the clarity by 10% and remove a person standing in front of the lighthouse.
In my camera bag
I currently have a 7d mark ii, canon 10-18mm, canon 24-105L and canon 55-250mm lens. thats about it sometimes I use a manfrotto monopod but not often as i like to move light and cover a lot of ground on foot.
Feedback
Using a wide angle lens makes the scene more dramatic as you get a natural distortion around the edges, also as its beside the coast the weather is prone to change often, this particular place in Bretagne gets great light through most of the day.
