I am astonished by how far that lens can reach, that is just unbelievable, that must be a a few miles away!!!

Congratulations! Beautiful shot.

Really fun shot. Lovely. This is a good example of how a photo can show a more 'real' reality than simply photo-realism, if that makes sense. Keep up the great work!

Having been there at that time of the day I cannot understand the colors.
Was this toned?
It's a great photo, but as people said it was oversharpened. My only thing is I am curious about the color.

suprising!
this was one of my least favorite in the entire challenge. lacks crispness and appeal. there is nothing special about the composition.
03/31/2004 03:51:30 PM
I'm so happy this got a ribbon, it was my personal favorite. Keep up the beautiful work.

Congratulations on the ribbon! This was shot from berkeley? Wow! I would have guessed Treasure Island (Yerba Buena), or maybe the Bay Bridge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very, very nice rendition of the famous bridge. Congratulations on your placement.

Congrats on the ribbon! The first three were really close, so it might as well be a blue one...

Ya, quite a ways away. I used a 500 mm lens to shoot in the parking lot of lawrence hall of science in the berkeley hills.
After I submited I realised that I sharpened once too often and got the ghosting on the suspension supports, live and learn.
Thanks for all the kind words and fine crits.

Love this photograph!

such a serene mood and lovely monochromatic treatment... one of my favorites (to move it to one of my ribbon picks I'd suggest softening the 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 composition -- somehow the water line and the orange line in the sky is too linear for the mood you've created - hope that makes sense...)

Very powerful orange. great shot. 10

I'm looking forward to being here on April 6th! I've heard about the mist - this looks great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2004 12:28:18 PM
incredible! The yellow 'halos' around the support lines are a bit distracting, and I wonder if those are a result of too much post-processing ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2004 05:50:56 PM
Nice composition, but the color banding in the clouds is distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 09:04:40 PM
great shot, love everything about it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2004 08:23:48 PM
My highest rated of the challenge. The glow here is amazing and it only has a few flaws i see. The bridge lines (the top two) are contrasted too much, making it a little bit too pixelated. Otherwise, congratulations on a wonderful shot.

A stunning scene, I love the atmosphere in this photo. The range of "orange" is beautiful. 9

Good luck...

This is a classically beautiful shot. I love San Francisco. I love the sihouettes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2004 11:25:49 PM
This is an excellent photo. I don't know how the sky ended up layering into two shades like that, but it certainly adds to the composition. The strong oranges here are rich, almost threatening. Very interesting look. This photo is tied with one other photo for my top vote of the week.

Beautiful; almost completely orange!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2004 01:07:12 PM
Nice color and composition but oversharpening hurts this image. Given the existing haze you would have been better to use softer focus to highlight that feature.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2004 12:55:34 PM
beautiful. almost dreamlike

Perfect color range, great composition a ribbon getter in my books.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2004 08:26:23 AM
While a pleasing composition the photo looks to be fairly oversharpened. Especially around the top of the bridge's tower and the lines leading away from it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2004 04:12:54 AM
Stunning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2004 03:06:49 AM
wow what a color! From your title, I'd like to see the birdge as the main subject.
Maybe captured more on the right? just my opinion. Anyway a great shot!
