The crashing wave adds the energy that was missing in your previous upload. Great timing. Irresistible force meets immovable object...

It's a totally different composition. It needs a very slight clockwise rotation - you can see this easily if you scroll up until the horizontals start to meet the top of the screen! It's a good discipline to get into the habit of always checking something like this against the grid. A sea horizon in particular really does need to be level...

I would want to either include more of the superstructure, or to crop off the tiny bits projecting sideways at the very top - as this stands, they look accidental.

One other thing - this looks rather over-sharpened to my eye. It's partly a matter of taste. But if you look at some areas of spray - to the left and right of the left hand support, for example - the spray has the two-dimensional look of a flat texture layer.

Just nit-picky points, but important. I hope you won't be offended by that as this is in the main Gallery not the CG

It's good to see someone who will tackle a wide variety of subject by the way!
