Very bold colours for this pretty lighthouse.
I notice that you seem to have a few dust spots on your sensor that will show up on plain backgrounds at smaller apertures. You will need to shop around to find a camera repair man to do a nice "wet clean" for you.
Otherwise you will be doing a lot of cloning and healing in post.

franz from Baden, Austria

this is really one of the iconic places on the east coast, and one every photographer should visit at least once in their lifetime!!!
(my pentax tends to develop these spots on the sensor, too, and i've had to get it cleaned twice already ... if i don't, i have to do a lot of correcting while processing the images!)
