Plumb Beach Lighthoues. Taken while bouncing around in my brothers 17 foot boot. Built in 1899, it is no longer an operational lighthouse since the building of the Jamestown Bridge (background). It's upkeep is done by "Friends of Plumb Beach Lighthouse" //www.plumbeachlighthouse.org/
Straight out of the camera - didn't even crop it - and I still like it. I may get dinged for it being centered, but I like seeing the water and bridge on both sides of the lighthouse.

It could use a slight CW rotation. Great colors and feel to this.

Nice composition, but it looks like it needs a very slight clockwise rotation

My only comment is the bridge in the background. It seems to draw you to your subject then all of a sudden it seems to cut it in half. I just found it very distracting. Perhaps a tighter crop to make your subject the only attention point.
