Challenge: You Name It! II (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Pentax K-01
Lens: Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8
Location: Marin County, CA
Date: Mar 16, 2015
Aperture: f/9
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/200
Date Uploaded: Mar 17, 2015

Hoping for something like "Not Another F*ing GG Bridge Shot!" although "City of Gold" might be good too.

Pulled off the road on my way to work Monday to grab this shot. Was bummed I overslept because 30-60 minutes earlier I'm sure it was much better, so I was left to dial up the saturation and glow in LR and NIK. :)

POST: Thanks for all the great titles, views and votes. For those who know this area, this is of course a sunrise, not a sunset, because I'm looking east.

I appreciated all the great titles, but in the end decided to go with the suggestion from 21.gif markwiley. Though he says he's from Chicago he appears to have some deep roots in the Bay or at least shares my longtime appreciation for the late great Herb Caen.

Sunrise San Francisco

I gotta get over to that side one of these days -- I have zero shots from this angle ... :-(

Dayspring's Splendor

If this is a sunset, I'm prepared to be embarrassed by the title I'm offering. This is a spectacular image of the Golden Gate Bridge from such a unique perspective and if I've missed the clock by a few hours, so be it. Stunning clarity and colors. Some may find the bulk of the headlands oppressive in the frame, but, for me, it is an anchor. A solid ten from me.

Bridge Under Troubled Hillside

The foreground is rather dominant -- perhaps a shift in point of view.

Dusk falls over San Francisco

Lovely image! The colors and composition is really nice. I like the sunset through the bridge, lots of interesting details in this image. I had to come back more than once!
