Love how the sepia tone brings a new feel to the city. Very cool!

Big fan of this monochrome. Nice composition .. not sure why people insist on seeing the same boring ol' color landscape shots over and over. Congrats on the ribbon, consider it validation.

In this case, I prefer the pewter-like appearance to the more familiar garish gold. Your composition (angles, position) are pleasing to my eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2005 12:53:31 PM
Great tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2005 12:32:36 PM
Great visual placement, probably among the better of the other San Fran-bridge shots I've seen. Lighting gives the bridge a romantic glow. However, the denser part of the cityscape gets lost behind the bridge - an instance where color might have helped.

Very nice effect using the sepia tone.

great shot this is ribbon worthy

nice composition and light tones
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2005 10:47:18 PM
Good choice on the sepia. I would have considered cropping slightly more off the top. Some distracting lights in the detract a little from the overall feel. Otherwise an excellent submission - very well done. 9

Excellent tone and great exposure time.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2005 08:21:13 AM
beautiful. The shooting star/jet trail is a very nice effect in this picture. I think using the sepia tone instead of color really makes this shot classic and is something I would pay to hang on my walls.

i would like to say congratulation for the great skills.9

i like the sepia toning. you rarely see this view in anything but bright color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2005 10:18:38 AM
never have been a big fan of this colour tone but it really looks good on your photo. it's beautiful, all of it... you did no wrong
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2005 01:11:49 AM
I like it...what's that line across the top though? 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2005 12:00:24 AM
Wow, excellent streak across the sky makes it dynamic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 11:03:56 PM
Nice photo... spoilt by some not so good cloning a third of the way up the support. A very difficult photo to clone out power wires or whatever easly. The higher line is also distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 07:39:34 PM
I loved the sepia toning on this one. Marvelous shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 07:04:20 PM
A classic. How many other photographers did you meet up there ?
I like the sepia tone.
Would make a great postcard.

I wouldn't be surprised if it ribboned.

I've seen a few SF shots on here, but this one is outstanding. Great composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the tonality of this image. One of my favorites of the challenge. Good luck.

fabulous. 10.

This is beautiful! Just the right lighting and tone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 10:25:19 AM
Another SF shot...I think this is my fav. Nice. A few jagged light spots in background are the only things keeping this from a ten, from me.

05/05/2005 09:12:21 AM
That mound on the left really spoils this view.

Beautiful, sharp. Great composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 04:09:21 PM
I love the feel of this shot! It's almost Hollywood glam....very richly styled. Nice crisp image. I love the positioning of the shot as well. Great lighting. Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 03:42:06 PM
This is so beautiful!!! I really like your cepia tones. It's a different take on this most exotic of night shots.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 02:43:26 PM
Wow, great composition. Duotone treatment doesn't work for me though, I'd have prefered it in colour.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 01:47:14 PM
Wonderful detail. The monotone treatment works really well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 01:37:14 PM
Would not have occurred to me to make this image sepia, but the effect is terrific!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 11:33:53 AM
Hey, what a great idea! Take a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge with the city in the BG. But it IS a nice one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 11:30:41 AM
Love this one - it looks like a postcard. Composition is very good and the sepia tone makes it stand out. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 10:01:22 AM
Great color and love the lights of the city. 10

Excellent composition, looks good in sepia.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 06:12:51 AM
this would be the 9,427th time I've seen this image. Although it's a nice exposure, its a boring picture. Severe lack of imagination and freshness.
05/04/2005 05:36:17 AM
great photo - composition and colour
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 02:22:10 AM
beautiful composition, nicer if sharper though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 02:15:58 AM
Is that a jet contrail in the sky? Darn those basic editing rules that prohibit spot editing. Absolutely lovely none the less. It looks very dramatic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 12:25:36 AM
i really love the composition of this photo. but i think the color makes it look dirty. the exposure is fantastic and the shot fits the guidelines. while it isnt the only cityscape i have seen so far, it is the creme of the crop. Good Work!!! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 12:23:05 AM
I'm not sure the sepia helps the golden gate bridge, but just my opinion. Good exposure though, and good DOF. 7
