This is the Vaillancourt Fountain at the Embarcadero. I spent nearly two hours there trying to photograph it in an interesting way, and still left unsatisfied. Luckily, I was able to give it the dark atmosphere that I wanted in post.

Lessons learned: Get a frickin' tripod! Also, get there early. There's a sky scraper not far away, which puts the fountain in shade in the afternoon.

the mix of composition, shutter speed and post processing makes this the tie for my top pick in the challenge. excellent work.

Pretty cool fountain. I like the shot, but I think this would have been better with either a faster or slower shutter speed. Either freeze the motion or get a stronger motion effect, whereas this is somewhere in between.

But, of course, the ubiquitous S.F. gull.
