I'm thinking top three. My favorite from the challenge.

hahaha I thought that was 'cannabis' in the foreground at first. Hey, I consider you lucky because I live near here too (maybe we've met) and every time I go to the Golden Gate HOPING for a fog shot, there never is any! now THAT is unlucky. Fantastic colors here, especially considering the foggyness and a nice fit for the challenge :)

that fog is intense

What a save. Good thing this challenge was running, eh? No other way this could have worked!

This is a very pretty image. I like how everything blends together to look like a nice misty-yet-bright landscape.

Cool shoot, I like the green and red colors

Heheheh, isn't it always that way when you travel! Nice sharp, colorful composition. While a nice contrast to the red bridge and bldg, I'd have composed with a lot less of the green in the foreground, especially to get rid of the little triangle of dirt in the bottom left.

And how lucky is that when you need a shot for an "Unlucky" challenge? :D

This is my nomination for 1st place. Congrats on such an unlucky shot!

Haven't we all been there and done that! I traveled from Australia to Italy only to find the leaning tower of Pisa was covered in scaffolding that was to be removed the week after I was there. Great "unlucky" shot.
