Default Geometry in Composition: Triangles, etc.

Went down to Lake Michigan today at the end of Montrose Ave. in Chicago. I haven't been to that particular "park" before. There was a boatyard with a lot of sailboats (and other types). Looking at all the masts and rigging, I immediately thought of this current challenge. Lots of triangles and various other geometric shapes.

Hmmm...once again I seem to have lost a fair amount of sharpness after posting.

You may have lost sharpness but the colors are quite vivid...the blues of the water, sky and boats and the splash of red is very eye catching.

My eyes were more attracted to the diagonal line of boats rarther than the triangles of the masts. Funny how things catch the individual eye.
Aloha and thanks for submitting.

Thanks for your comments, vsch1 and selvin! Yeah, Selvin, it is funny - and a good thing, I think.

It is interesting how different people think. I never thought of going to a marina for this challenge.

Nice shot though typical of marinas everywhere.

Thanks, Cal. Well, I didn't realize the marina was there until I arrived! I thought I was just taking the little lady to the waterfront. But when I saw those boats....
