I like it, but the colors are a little too vivid on the bridge.

Holy moley! My first reaction is to say that has been edited... but since it's already been validated, I guess the old bridge just got a new paint job. Very nice colors and composition.

It ain't called the "Golden Gate" bridge for nothin'. Nicely captured.

Looks like an old time postcard.

Great capture with phenomenal light...it really is a Golden Gate here

I love the colors of the sky and the light on the bridge is fantastic. Nicely done.

What colours! Definitely one of my faves.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Super-saturated - this really looks like one of those 40's or 50's style postcards. I love the red on the bridge. The highlights on the city in the left are also extremely beautiful.

Great color, obviously. Reminds me of Peter Max or Andy Warhol. To be honest, though, that's all that really grabs me here. Somehow, there's nothing that makes me want to stare at this image. On the other hand, I don't know what I would suggest to change that. Good luck. This should do well.

Golden Gate is the Golden Gate. I wish I lived in SF, sigh...

Strata of coloros amazing!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 09:16:18 AM
Excellent composition, but the colors are a bit overdone
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2005 07:57:17 PM
You over did the colors a little too much for my taste. It looks like a cartoon.

With normal colors I'd probably give this a 9.

Easy on the adjustments next time!! Way too much saturation/contrast/levels. Would have been a good score otherwise
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This picture is very beautiful, the water is very textured.. and the boat really brings out the image. The only thing I dont lke about this picture is that is to original.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Personally I would have waited for the ship to pass to accentuate the bridge itself a little more. Though that might have taken too long. Otherwise very pleasant.

Reminds me of an old '30's postcard. 10++++!

Great shot of this marvelous structure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 09:58:14 PM
Amazing color, but almost a little oversaturated to my eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 09:22:15 PM
This is lovely. It looks, to me, like the red is a bit oversaturated.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 06:35:22 PM
Sunset is such a nice time to take that image. Boosted those colors a little, maybe? Makes for a good photo...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 05:36:38 PM
The colors are very nice, altough the red channel looks a bit clipped (the red is a bit too intense imho). I like the composition with the diagonal angle of the bridge and the depth of a wide view (as opposed to the compressed scen of a tele). The ship fills the space at the bottom nicely and is a welcome element. Nice work.

Beautiful, vivid colours and gorgeous lighting. You got this at just the right moment - nice work!

A little heavy on the color tweaking for my taste.

Good shot. Good color; good composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 05:46:05 AM
Great angle on this architectural wonder. Reds look oversaturated though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 03:16:13 AM
Awsome perspective and lighting. You were in the right place at the right time. Hope to see this in the top 10. I don't like how saturated the red is, but may be natural.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 03:08:02 AM
This bridge is allways photographed right from here.
I have seen this pisture att least 10000 times.

A good picture. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:46:20 AM
the saturation might be a little too much but it does draw attention to this awesome bridge. like the purple sky and the placement on the boat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:38:41 AM
This is really very nice, but I feel like you've thrown the colour too far. The violet/green/salmon sky is articicial looking, and the very distinctive red-orange of the actual Golden Gate has been thrown off as well... It's probably just me, but I'd have given it a 10 instead of a 9 if I felt better about these colours. Stunning shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 12:27:27 AM
Colors seem a bit overdone. Unnecessary imho, as the image is powerful without the increased saturation. Good framing and time of capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 12:16:19 AM
great view...looks like I have some competition here !
