A foggy day in the City. Drove home the long way over the GG Bridge while I was out shooting for the Ducky challenge. The pic I wanted wasn't there because of the fog, but I drove down to Fort Baker to grab this shot instead with the FS in the back of my mind. Not the most productive month photo wise, as I didn't get out to shoot as much as I usually do (don't you hate it when life gets in the way of photography :>P), and leaving for Quebec today so submitting this ahead of the curve in case I don't have time to upload something from the trip to replace this.

Don't expect this to do that well, mid 5s perhaps, and probably wouldn't submit if I wasn't in the FS Marathon.

Post-Challenge ETA: Well this one exceeded my expectations by far. Just shows to go that even after 125 challenges I STILL have no idea what the voters will like, and what they won't. Thanks for the kind comments and votes.

I'm not really feeling the choice of sepia toning her. Fog is cool and damp, sepia toning is warm. There's a conflict there

reminds me of "into the mist" by....well..another dpc member awhile ago. anyways, i love the sepia tone, its beautiful for an image with clouds like this. the cotnrast is perfect, and the fading just makes it rock on ever more. good job

Not your typical Golden Gate shot, and that's a good thing. Sepia tones work well here. Good luck!

This seems to have some resizing or sharpening issues?
