Thanks to TwoLaidBack for resurrecting this thread.

After some hue/sat and curves adjustment on the sandy water, I subjected this image to Xero supersmooth, then Caravaggio, then Impressionist>paint>free daubs (modified). Added a layer mask to hide some of the brush strokes in the sky and darkened it some.

Thread simulation.

Still working out the kinks with my technique. Very much not happy with the result, but this result is a little better then using GIMPressionist (used Impressionist this time). Not ready to share the preset yet; not until a lot more fine-tuning. I just wish there was a free plugin that can simulate threads/tapestries, but I've not found one (you all know how cheap I am; that's why I usually have to figure things out on my own. ). Hope you all like this one anyway. The complete rendering can be found here; I've attached the crop below for both legacy reasons, and, since I only have 100K to spare and this needs to be seen at a higher quality.

edit: change of mind.

Posted the preset here. If you can get it better then please do and share your solution with the rest of us. Note that I did adjust the jitter of the placement from 10 to 25 (a little more random). All the settings can be adjusted, but I'm getting tired of doing so. Hopfully a hero out there can get it to look better like thread then plastic.

I figured it out.

Thought I would share with you all the rendering and preset. Thread2 will give you the result that you see; Thread1 gives a more potatoe bag stitch. Have fun.

Here is my version: http://www.jereme.com/clients/challenges/lighthouse.jpg

I started by removing the blue background and replacing it with something much darker to set the tone I wanted.

I used levels and curves adjustment layers to alter the appearance of the waves. The boardwalk on the left had too many intricate pieces so I decided to just add another wave to cover it mostly up.

I added some lightning to the background. It's really getting serious now...

Lastly, I think I this is the first time I ever found myself a use for the lens flare filter.

I'm pretty pleased with the results.

I'm not really much for actual retouching. I like the sketch and painting effects that you all are doing. I will have to work on some of those.

Welcome aboard, jereme. Outstanding work on this one. Well done. You have every right to be pleased.

I know what you mean.

Keep the creativity coming.

BTW: I took the liberty of uploading your creation as an attachment. That way when you modify your website someday making the link obsolete, your work will be preserved.
