The Twelve Apostles
We had a month in Australia and went for a day trip along the Great Ocean Road. It was crawling with Tourists and I had difficulty getting a clear shot. I was disappointed about the misty day, but I think it seems ok on the photo.

Needs to be seen at full size to get the best of the shot, like the detail in the cliff on the right contrasted with the softness of the background, could be improved with a tighter crop on the left, but that's just my opinion. well seen and taken

A lovely shot that has a lot going for it, but desperately needs some work in Ps or other to bring out it's potential.
Try some brightness/contrast adjustment for starters then take it from there.
Steve mentions a crop from the left with which I agree. Crop till you get the vertical thirds line running through the pyramid shaped rock, then go further, crop from the bottom to just above the bright bottom right corner and as the sky is a lost cause crop some of that too.
It's a shot that certainly deserves it Jeremy, why not have a go

The conditions have not been kind to you, but the mist does add atmosphere to the image, the composition is good too, although a crop as suggested by George and Steve would make it even better.

on another tack Chez. f16 can have the effect of softening an image, I would have used no more than f11 given the vista facing you and would have focused at 1/3 the way into your scene. There is a sensor spot to the LHS when viewed full size so have a look at that and perhaps use the cameras cleaning device on the menu.
Compositionally your main interest point is dead centre and Steve suggests a crop from the LHS and I fully agree with that. Generally main points of interest are best around lines or junctions of thirds where they command more viewability.
Some post processing would improve this drastically and I notice you haven't mentioned any software but have said 'Directly photographed'. I am unsure what this means. If you need any help with this Chez, you only need to ask.

All been said really, so just a matter of what you want to achieve as an end result really.
The image could be completely changed or shown with the haze i.e. as it actually was. Looks like tricky access to the beach with those cliffs though, well seen anyway.

Another good shot as you say a shame about the weather but the mist does give it a bit of an atmospheric look.
