Beautiful photograph. Excellent composition using the vertical format. Like seeing the city in the background. Very fitting the bridge is gold in this shot. Well done.

good crop. and composition
05/10/2005 05:37:10 PM
Very nice! Great comp. One of my favorites so far.

The brown sky looks great with the golds on the bridge!
05/09/2005 08:29:32 AM
Takes me back to where I grew up. Love the abstract feeling of the bridge.
05/09/2005 01:46:56 AM
Nice clear shot of the bridge. I love the golden color the lights give off. The city behind the bridge looks beautiful. Great shot!
05/08/2005 11:14:11 PM
I've got tons of photos of the bridge, but never at night. Well done! 9

Excellent work here! 10

this brought back great memories- one of my favourite cities and a lovely picture
05/05/2005 11:56:13 PM
have never seen a picture like this of the golden gate bridge, thanks for something new first of all. i like how it's peeking over the hill, with a beautiful glowing tower to the corner and a city background. great job

a little blurry, which I am sure you know. Great perspective though.
05/05/2005 10:17:51 AM
Love it...I have been in this spot. You made me miss SF even more.
05/05/2005 07:52:19 AM
Very nice. The background is just sharp enough to know what it is but not over power the foreground. Love the tones on the bridge support. Good job
05/05/2005 05:51:53 AM
This is deja vu. Wasn't the daytime picture entered a couple of challenges back? The mound/hill/mountain is still a problem.
05/05/2005 04:18:32 AM
This black triangular object at the lower left hand corner detracts from what would otherwise have been an excellent shot. Lucky you living in beautiful SF.
05/05/2005 12:16:27 AM
wonderful shot.
05/04/2005 11:11:57 PM
Nice shot. Needs to be sharper. USM should fix it right up.
05/04/2005 09:50:53 PM
Nice composition of something shot a lot.
05/04/2005 05:53:55 PM
Nice exposure and framing of the subject. Well done
05/04/2005 03:18:41 PM
Gasp! This is stunning! It seems I've seen this view in daylight in another challenge, and thought it couldn't have gotten prettier then. But this outdid it :) 10
05/04/2005 02:27:54 PM
I like the sharpness, but feel that the dark land mass on the lower left is a little too intrusive.
05/04/2005 12:49:46 PM
lower left black area very distracting.
05/04/2005 11:24:54 AM
Great composition. Lighting on the "goldengate" is really cool. I like the lines reflected in the water across the bay.
05/04/2005 10:16:50 AM
great composition. white balance is a bit to the red side.
05/04/2005 09:57:25 AM
Beautiful light!
05/04/2005 06:51:46 AM
nice - i like the angles created by the bridge lines and the mountain
05/04/2005 05:49:17 AM
Very nice.
05/04/2005 01:11:21 AM
Nice angle on the city. I like the triple sense of depth between the city, the bridge, and the foreground silhouette. Wonderful!

I like the contrast and colors. there seemto be a slight barrel distortion... perhaps shooting from a bit further back at a longer reach would help?
