Default Diagonals -- Peter's Landing

A few miles north of here is an inlet from the Pacific and a private boat dock for sea-going pleasure vessels. I was almost green with envy observing some of the million-dollar boats, until I was reminded of the old saying. "The two happiest days of a boat owner's life is 1) the day he purchased it, and 2) the day he sold it."

Of all the pictures posted in the challenge so far, in my opinion, this shot comes the closest to meeting Selvin's intent. That is having diagonal element(s) in the photo that split the photo into two parts. Well done.

Very strong entry... Cal is right this is perhaps the closest to the classic definition of Diagonals in composition.
Good job.

Just wondering if that guy walking down the dock is going to his boat in the last slip or just taking a long walk off a short pier?
