One of the tough things about getting good lighthouse photos is perspective. Most of the time, our only position to photograph them is from the ground and without a perspective correction lens, lighthouses (and other buildings) appear to fall away from us, distorting the image.
In this situation, I looked for, and found, a vantage point about half as high as the lighthouse thus giving me a more pleasing angle to shoot from. This vantage point was the second floor porch of the Hemingway House Museum. I must admit, in all honesty, that this was a deciding factor in my decision to purchase a ticket. I think it was worth it. I positioned myself so that palm trees would frame my subject adding more interest to the shot.
