I gave this a 10, one of the best of the challenge, IMO! So well done!

Compositionally, this is a very strong shot. The city in the background and the bridge make a nice balanced composition. However, it does feel ever so slightly tilted to the right. I know part of it is a perspective thing -- it would be difficult to get the background straight without making the bridge look weird, but the verticals on the bridge look a bit slanted as well. I do find myself wanting just a bit more "stuff" on the right, but overall, nicely done.

Technically, the exposure, focus and colors on this are very well done, very attractive, and very pleasant to look at.

The script you have chosen works very well.

Overall, a great shot (one of my higher scorers) and definitely one you can be proud of.

The square crop makes it not a classic post card, to my mind, but the photo is great.

Your vertical is off just a bit. Very pretty otherwise.

Not voting, only commenting:

Very nicely exposed, although your horizon could use come straightening, and the dark area bottom left detracts a bit.

A very nice capture from Presidio and is very representative of San Francisco in general. The font and it's treatment is perfect and matches the overall feeling of the image. The highlights are perfectly on the edge and compliment the image. Well done.

Very popular composition, I recall a similar image in the last Postcard challenge, if it works it works! Nice shot, tones excellent in Bridge's tower.

Very well done. Originally a 7 but after further review it's a nice 8. Love the silouhette of the mountain on the left bottom corner. Gives it a nice contrast.

Looks like the picture is tilted down to the right. Sky looks a bit hazy.

This is classic. Love the light flares. Sure looks like a postcard you'd see at a tourist stand. :~)
