Another trip to my fav lighthouse. Waves were huge and the wind was blowing hard. If you look close at the pic, you will see some foolish people standing on the pier.... More sunshine would have been nice...

WOW, great action shot. Powerful red against off white wave. Also, missed the valdo in the first pass. Good luck.

Initially I just saw the lighthouse and big wave, after that I spotted the person ad the door and though, "Hmm, they stand a very large chance of getting wet", but after that I spotted the person to the left of the frame, what exactly are they up to???

As for the shot, it's a good dramatic well timed capture. I recognise this lighthouse from another shot, but I think in that one it was all frozen.

Which lighthouse is this? Could it be Grand Haven, MI?

6 - Whilst this is interesting with the person widely straddled on the left - the person in front of the lighthouse looks in quite a predicament. If the quality was there - a specific crop on this part of the scene would make a fantastic image/capture/photograph. Some tweaking in post processing too, just to bring out the depth a little more and also clone out the couple of specks on the right. Your call of course, but the title detracts/doesn't seem to suit the image.
