This is the pool side of the earlier post.

Crop, auto levels and slight adjustment with curves.

You've got some converging lines here as well but not as obvious as in the other photo.
This picture reminds me of a photo I've seen in a magazine ad on one of my photography magazines. It shows a swimming pool at dusk with nothing but ocean behind it. However, I don't think this is it. I think the setting in the ad is in the Mediterranian or a Greek island.

Great shot!

I see the vanishing point. I don't get heart palpitations about it. Technically a good shot since the exposure etc are right on target.

I had wondered if it was a pool in your first image because of the color but I thought 'why would there be a pool there?' What a surprise to see a pool right next to the ocean! Thanks a bunch for sharing the other half of your first image!

Humm, all lines seem to have a definite end. I'm with Selvin here...can't get to excited about it. Nevertheless, the shot is well in focus and exposure is good.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I must point out that if you extend the lines in the pool and the other vertical lines in the photo, they clearly converge somewhere out over the ocean. If you do as I did in the examples I added to Selvin's challenge posting, and overlay the lines in the photo with straight lines drawn in PS or PSP, you will see the convergence.

Here is the photo with my yellow lines drawn on it. I rest my case. This photo definitely qualifies.

Thanks all for the kind comments and encouragement, just looking for something a little less obvious than roads, railways etc
