    What is it that you want me to straighten so I can fix it?

    I dig the composition of this photo, but am not keen on the lighting and exposure.

    Might you be able to re-shoot this at sunrise/sunset along with a longer exposure? Again, great composition, but I would prefer warmer light and more veiling of the whitecaps.

    Just my opinion.

    I agree, it does appear that way.

    a little bit too generic to be lauded, in my opinion. lighthouses are way over-photographed. personally, most pictures need people in them to be interesting/original. there are a few exception, this isn't one of them.

    try rotating the picture about 1 degree clockwise. The see how it would look with the light house center in the frame and cropped at the first white cap. It might look like hell but you never know till you look.

    The lighthouse and horizon are actually straight or "level" its just the angle that makes them appear that way!! the lighthouse sits on a pier that starts out straight and then angles to the left. Here is a diffrent view of it and the corner or"turn" is where it takes on the look of being off.

    Sorry acsonpg your photo is not coming through to me so I can not see what you edited it to look like.
