I really, really, REALLY have to thank 21_F.gif sfalice for showing me around the city this last time I was up there. She showed me so many places that I'd never been before. This viewing spot was our first stop that morning (about 645-7am.) There was no one else up there and the light from the rising sun being filtered through the haze was just amazing. Alice mentioned that this spot was closed for quite some time and had just reopened.

Thanks everyone for the votes and comments and thank you Alice for the very nice day!

This was definitely my top pick in the challenge. Well seen and incredibly well executed Mark! And yes, Alice is the ultimate SF tour guide, as my wife and I can attest! I only wish this location had been open when we visited in 2011. Congrats on the Blue, very well deserved.

This is beautiful Mark--I think I like this POV better than the more traditional shots of this bridge. Congrats on a well-deserved blue!!

Outstanding image. You are on a roll. I love how you've selected a perspective that is not the "usual" view of the bridge.

Very original take on this bridge, can't remember having seen this before. Beautiful light as well!

This is really, really striking. While I get why you might frame it this way, down the center, it doesn't quite feel right. You're also just a hair too far to the right from perfectly down the center, which is a little distracting. You're also about 1/2 degree left of vertical and need to rotate it just a touch to the right. Any of those things fixed I might give this a 9 or 10. As is it feels "off", but is otherwise a beautiful capture. 7

My pick for the red; great picture. The only issue for me is the bridge feels a little crooked (maybe it is?), a few steps to the left to get the rear support perfectly lined up with the front support would have helped.

This is mesmerizing.. Fantastic perspective, very unusual but highly effective. And the tones throughout carry this image beautifully.

Every once in a great while, someone has a new take on an old theme. This is wonderful; I'd hang it on my wall...

Awesome perspective.

This is absolutely beautiful! My favorite for this challenge. The lighting through the bridge with the mountains and all perfectly sharp. 10.
