My dad was fixing some UC professor's computer so his email would work. While we were up in the hills we took some pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge. The color would have been better later, but we had to leave. My dad cropped the picture off the top a bit (to rid of the phone wire).

For a 2002 vintage, this is an excellent shot. Good job Isaac! :)

Very nice shot. I scored it an 8. Very well framed and the dark foreground and blue sky with the very light center is perfect. Exposure is spot on. GOOD JOB!

A less hazy day would make this outstanding, but I really like how the bridge towers line up perfectly with the cloud layer. If there were only two pickets on that gate it would mimic the structure of the bridge even better.

I love the colors in the sky. Nice photograph!

This is a very dramatic shot. I like how you framed it with the house and fences, but I wish the trees on the left weren't there. Short of cutting them down, I guess there wasn't much you could do though. ;) Also, some more seperation between the fence on the right and the bridge would have been nice, but that's just nitpicking. Nice job.

gorgeous. I like the varying stages of colors here, from teh black foreground to the light in the middle and the blue at the top. karmat

very slick. I really want that to have been taken from the front balcony there on the right side. 8

Pleasing image - not easy to make the gg bridge look so small! Interesting silhouette - which is, I think, the negative space - or is the sky the negative space, or both? Not sure.

hey, you live

I like your pic

this is a beautiful image... I almost think that you could have shot the bay here and left out some of the silhouetted images in the foreground.... this is a beautiful scene... i hope you took some more shots of this :) = 8 - jmsetzler

Great use of negative space --- my eyes are drawn right to the bridge and they stay there.

Great view. You might have thought to go up to the fence and shot from there so you wouldn't have all the stuff in the foreground. 5

It almost looks like the bridge is holding up the sky. Getting closer may have helped here.
09/16/2002 07:39:00 PM
I'm not sure this wouldn't have worked better if you'd left out the nearby stuff.

How wonderfully serene! Meets challenge and visually appealing. Not finding too many in this challenge that meets both. FIne job! Good luck in the challenge...it's a tough one! Grayce aka Gracious

Wow look at that bridge. Nice shot. Score 7 Justine

Very nice. If my understanding of negative space is correct, you did a great job. 8

Good neg spc; nice calming shot. Doesn't carry a great deal of impact for me, but overall very nice. lhall-7
