It's possible to straighten without causing the lighthouse to be wonky. Rather than just rotate the image, if you have Photoshop or Elements, or possibly other photo manipulation programs, create a duplicate layer then use "Transform" and "distort". You can drag the bottom right corner down and out a little, and possibly make some other minor tweaks to keep the lighthouse and the structure below it looking correct. You will also then need to stretch the image vertically as it will have become a little bit "squat" as a result of the distortions applied which will stretch it horizontally. don't over do it or you'll lose too much of that wonderful sky. A certain amount of "converging verticals" left in the shot is fine: it emphasises the "looking up" sensation.

A benefit of the distortion being on a duplicate layer is that you can easily switch the layer visibility off and on to see the effect, and make additional tweaks if you need to. (You will need to apply the transformation before you can switch the layer's visibility off and on.)

Sure, you'll be slightly distorting our whole galaxy (!) but lenses do that anyway, and we're allowed a little artistic licence Tongue

It's worth trying it - it's a cracking image!
