    I like the idea of this thread. Sometimes people post in the specific subjects threads and you wonder if it is safe to give an honest opinion. Anyway I am ready to sacrifice an image to the critique gods.

    HI Edward. It's a nice image. I think it can be improved with some color correction. I also think the left and bottom of the frame have some distracting elements. Here is is how I interpret your photo (also bringing out he shadow detail a smidge).

    [lighthouse photo]
    My first thought was to crop all of the foreground footprints. Maybe to just below that bare rock in the foreground.

    I'd go for something less objective, with a greater sense of distance and drama. An imposing tower looking over a wind-swept rocky landscape.

    The pano does it for me. I didn't care for the footprints at all, so getting rid of the bottom was a must, But I like the way that the pano keeps the best of the clouds.

    Allowing people to explore and present alternate versions of photos (whether or not they provide any verbal explanation) can be a very effective way to grow artistically - not only for the original photographer, but for anyone who cares to view the exchange.

    I like the lighthouse image, but prefer not to have so many footprints in the foreground. It's an element of the photo's foreground, accident, preventable, or not. If it's nearby, keep going back especially right after a snow.

    When I shoot in the snow, I carefully circle the perimeter of the area, like a fox scoping out a chicken pen. Staying on the perimeter lets me figure out photos I can do without getting footprints in the snow. Then, as I shoot, I can get closer. Still I like to hide my footprints behind rocks where I can or use a particular path rather than crisscross a potentially photogenic scene, knowing my foot prints will be there till it either snows again or melts. If it's someone elses's footprints, not much you can do about that, but keep them in mind when photographing.

    My crop was a little different. I also removed some blue.
