Hello from the Critique Club,

Congratulations on your first 6+ score and in a 600+ image Free Study to boot. The lighting and color of this image are very well done and a pleasure to look at. The composition and perspective is also well done. The only suggestion I have for improvement would be to mask for the sky and tweak the post processing to bring out the clouds and darken the sky slightly. I think this would provide a bit more depth to your image visually. I could be accomplished fairly easily by bumping the gamma in levels, decreasing the brightness, and increasing contrast.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique.

I can't remember ever having seen the bay bridge photographed from this angle. I like how the flow goes back under the bridge and over towards Oakland, too bad the island(the name has left me right now) breaks that flow a little.

The embarrassing part...I looked at this for a little while trying to figure out from which side of the bay you took the a photo of the Golden Gate Bridge. Not only are there too many towers, but you even say Bay Bridge in the title.

Oh, in all that babble I failed to say...great photo!

A night image with a sepia tone... I dig it. at first I didnt, but I stared at it for a few moments, and I can see why you chose to do that. Its amazing how different it looks by night, isnt it?

This bridge is just amazing. It seems to change with the season, time of day, or night. Just beautiful.
