Um, yeah, the wetlands again. The boardwalk offered irresistable leading lines. There are seagulls and ducks and geese in the water, though they're too small to see any detail. They were all hunkered down.

Incredibly windy day; I lost my balance once and almost went for a swim not too far past the end of the railing!

I'd be kind of interested in seeing this in black and white.

Like the color of the sky and the shadows of the railing/fence. Nice composition but overall it doesn't do anything for me.

Great clouds and sky exposure. I like that the path leads me in. It might be nice to have a human or some subject at the end of the path.

I am not sure whether there is an unambigious definition of leading lines, but in my book, they should be a line or several lines that lead the viewer's eye towards the main subject of the picture. I think that's not the case in this picture. Your pic uses a vanishing point rather than leading lines.
