International Orange

By AaronCollettPhotography  
I had a really difficult task capturing a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. During the few days I was in San Francisco at the Golden Gate area it was very misty and I did think that I would return home without any photos of it.

Fortunately on the last evening I was there the low cloud started to break up and I managed to get a few shots. I'm not completely happy with them but they'll do until I perhaps visit the city again.

Taken using a 0.6 and 0.9 nd grads. 2.2 secs @ f5.6.

The infamous Golden Gate mist - I think it makes a great image!

I like this, makes a change from the usual views of the bridge in front of a brilliant blue sky!
Bit of drama in the sky makes this image!

Its not bad but I am not sold on the view point you have chosen. The chain starts at the right place on the right of the frame but it seems to cut the image off at the bottom. A more dramitic perspective enabling this to draw you into the picture would have been much niceer and made for a more involving image. As it is i feel it is an image of two halves. None the less it has been well taken.

Cool. I stood at the same spot last year and got a great sunset with the hills all lit up in red. I did have to go back there a few times to get it though. Luckily I was there for a while.

Excellent composition. Did you see anyone surfing the point?
