I took this in Ludington. Waves were at least 10ft. and wind was blowing over 30mph. The sun was starting to set, as the sky started glowing orange. Note that the lighthouse is tipped at about 6 degrees...due to settling into the breakwater.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes to the challenge

A great action shot with good timing to capture such a wave against the lighthouse. With regard to the lighthouse, I think this is one of those examples where true rendition can actually be a hindrance, the crookedness is the first thing I spotted and probably lots more voters and in terms of the image itself it is perceived somewhat negatively. I think a little poetic licence was called for. to rotate to a point where neither the sea or lighthouse was perfect would have made both much less obvious. Thanks for a great entry Drake

The lighthouse is actually leaning about 6 degrees, due to settling. :)
