Wellbalanced picture with the diagonal line - starting with the stem (is that what you call it??? ), leading across the water and disappearing between the mountains! I like :)

@Ewa: I am not sure what they are called.. I think it is just a log, may be used to tie boats..:). Thanks for your comment.
