okay, perhaps not the parallel perspective originally envisioned, but i think it still has the same feel to it...:G

I think this is acceptable. Curved lines weren't discussed in the challenge description. Curves are more difficult to work with to get the vanishing point idea. I think you have done well. The edges of the boardwalk in this shot are parallel to each other and do converge in the distance. The vanishing point is more implied than represented here.

Anyway, a great shot for many different challenges and, most important, just to enjoy.

Shot also exemplifies one of the tenets of composition dealing with the use of the "S".

In certain Geometries parallel lines can be curved. Yes the examples didn't show any curved lines but their vanishing points do exist.

Nice boardwalk. I'd love to go for a walk along this walkway searching for birds!!! Good angle of view!

Very nice capture...an S-curve in an image is considered as one of the ultimate compositions! :-)
