Greetings from the Critique Club!
Let me start off by saying that I disagree with some of the commenters who say that this is not a storm, as the feeling of it is very stormy to me.

The photo itself is very dramatic. From the composition to the freeze action, this works very well. I really like the perspetive in the composition as it leads one's eye directly towards the water surging up the dock and then further past to the white lighthouse in the distance.

The bright lights detract from the central focus of the shot. You could probably crop out the first one to the left and still have a very effective composition.

This was a middle-of-the-line shot and there is room for improvement. What makes it appealing is the angle and perspective chosen, as well as the frozen motion. Good job, and keep up the good work.

If you have any concerns, comments, or questions feel free to PM me.

Don't think it looks like a storm.

Might have been more effective in black and white, since the colors are a little dirty.

i love the overall color of this shot, especially with the tiny breakup of yellow/orange from the lights and their reflection
