Thanks for your comments. I had limited time for this asssignment and when I went to the beach, I didn't see anything that interested me. On my way back to my car, I saw this scene and I knew it was a good composition. I agree the time of day could have been better, but I had to make due with it. I like the different colors on the faded wood of the boardwalk. I think the white border added a nice touch.

Great job! This photo, although nice, is just not very interesting. The wooden boardwalk would have been better alone, without the other roadway looking things. Maybe you could have taken this from a different angle with better perspective. I do like the way the wooden planks curve from the bottom corner upward. Nice job keeping with the challenge's theme.

Very abstract, I love it!

Simple, but very pleasant....

Beautiful use of patterns. More texture could be achieved by shooting later in the day.

lighting a little too bright but good patterns

Nice abstract with the lines!

Simple yet appealing, could use a bump in color saturation and contrast.

nice minimal pattern here.

I like the flow of the paths and how you've composed them in this shot. I think the photo is lacking something though which I really can't put my finger on, maybe a bit more contrast.

Ok...I like this!

Unique shot and perspective. Like how the boardwalk curves the opposite way of the pavement.
