Well, we've got some converging lines down the center of the boardwalk and in the light poles but that's about it. It qualifies marginally. Let's see what Selvin has to say. It's his challenge.

I like the geometry of this photo and the symmetry. The angled boards tend to add a sense of distance and depth to the photo.

I don't see how this only "marginally qualifies". If I may quote you.....

"It (the point) can be anywhere in the photo or outside the photo. The idea is that the lines in the photo should point to the convergance point." -Calr

There are many lines pointing to a point. Please explain your apprehension.

matt,

I think you are correct in that the vanishing points of the floor boards and the building on the right are more than marginal. Incidentally, very nice shot.

I yield to the majority. My comments were based on the fact that the converging lines are limited to the center of the picture and the light poles. The slanted boards in the boardwalk do not form converging lines with a vanishing point. However they do add pattern and texture to the photo to make it more interesting.

This floor is great. Where was the picture taken? And what's the material of the floor? It seems like wood but it's hard to believe.
