Golden Gate Bridge.... Cropped first, then used Levels, Saturation, then USM (after resizing). I like the dark contrast of the chain railing in the fore ground.

I can't add anything to what's already been said, this is a great shot! Reminds me of a scene from my favorite movie, "Vertigo".

Nice shot of the Golden Gate Bridge! I like the whole picture, the chain link gives it a good foreground added to the bridge.

Beautiful interpretation of a "classic" image. This image would also take well to having "painting" filters run on it.

hahaha. I hadn't even looked at this challenge. I cannot believe this did not take a ribbon. It is by far the best photo in the challenge. I have lost faith in the voters here already (this may give you some clue as to what photo of mine you left a photo on in the current challenge). This is going in my favorites for sure. Keep up the great work. You're bound to get a ribbon soon. Gosh, I miss CA. :)

Love the composition ! Great colors and the contrast between the bridge and fence really do it for me. Nicely done.

Good shot. I like the shadowed chain on shore in contrast to the foamy movement of the rough water, the red of the bridge, the easy flow of the suspension cables, all against the mountainous backdrop and swirling soft sky directing us to the other side of the water.

Beautiful shot and another great take on the Golden Gate (I live in the Bay Area so I see a lot of these day in and day out - this is an especially nice one that is different from the others).

Beautiful shot! I'm sure I won't be the only one to say that this could easily be a post card.

Great shot but I don't see your connectin to the theme as most great shots (like yours) are taken from this spot.

The addition of the chainlink fencing and reflection on the sidewalk add the oomph in this popular subject and angle. Without them, the picture would have been just another Golden Gate snapshot. You have a good presence of mind to add these two elements in your shot to make it distinctive.

This is a fabulous tourist board shot. That water looks very powerful.
