Not what I was expecting to shoot the night I went out for this one in Long Beach, CA, but it reminded me of the Star Destroyer in Star Wars, Episode IV so I had to take the shot. :-)

Love it. I can 'see' the shot too ... snap'd!
 
i like it! the orange night sky looks like it's on fire
 
You don't understand the power of the underside.
 
Dang, Tom. Where ya been? You've been posting way less I believe.

Tom, when are you going to do some Hangouts?
 
It definitely has a Star Wars feel to it, +Tom Anderson. Those unexpected finds/shots can be my favorites. :-)
 
Where the hell in Long Beach is that, I live very near there and it does not look familiar. But then again I do not look at the underside of bridges much. :)
 
This is a really fantastic shot +Tom Anderson , I have to go check if our pier in MB does the Star Wars!
 
I was wondering where you've been +Tom Anderson ! Good to see your post pop back up in my stream again...
 
Been a while Tom Nice to see you back. 
 
Wow I definitely know my city. I looked at the picture and instantly thought, hey this is Long Beach, CA. Then I looked into the post and it said so. I am so proud.

Truly awesome photo. Such an Instagram moment.
 
would  you lik to tell me how capture this snape
 
It's like Google+ and Tron came together. Flynntastic.
 
That's just.. stunning. So cool. Makes me want to find places I wouldn't think of going.
 
this area of long beach (the ports and bridges) has some REALLY haunting vistas. very industrial.
 
Just noticed the date, July 1 :-) wow...  So much has happened this year :)  I need to take more pics :)
 
Great shot, Tom! It does remind me of the Star Destroyer from the Star Wars film. Great to see you post something again. I hope you enjoyed your break from the Internet!
 
thanks +Carlos Balderas I need to get my new drive in order to fully return... I'm having hard drive troubles :) and chose to ignore it rather than fix it :) haha
 
+Tom Anderson when did you decide to get involved with photography?  It is something I have always had interest in but realized it takes considerable time to learn.  I have watched your photos get increasingly better over the last year or so.  Makes me want to see what I can do as well :)  This is a great pic, but I really liked some of the Hawaii ones...as that is one of my favorite places in the world! 
 
Nice, I like to go to Shore line village in LB, maybe not the greatest photo op's but not a bad place to visit..Try Parkers Lighthouse next time your their.
 
Hay Tom could you your dad/uncle thatvim tryin to reach him. I sm randy tuckermans son . I live in calif,
cdcrock@gmail.com. hopefully he still has my phone number. Its tge same as my dads.
Tks Bro for passing it on for me. Tell Carroll i send my best wishes to her.
 
If you are just getting in to photography, I gotta say you're off to a great start..
 
سلام. شما یک استاد در عکاسی هستید.

hi +Marc Lee and +David Horvath I first started in September last year and got really serious about it in February or so. I had the camera in my hands almost every day since then until July. Hoping to return to my everyday shooting soon :)

Well keep after it +Tom Anderson...I sure enjoy them!  I also enjoy the entertainment value of the back stories that go along with them...getting locked on a beach...or even arrested :)...it seems every good photographer has a never-ending list of stories.  Hopefully before long I will have some of my own to share...you ought to roam out to the great State of Texas...while we aren't beach front property...we do have some amazing sights out here!
 
Woah! Really great shot! Is there some HDR-magic involved?
ning lu
 
outstanding scence
 
That is a sick picture! and even better that it can be related to star wars LoL!
 
great picture i could only dream of taking pictures like this!
 
awsome but surely morphed one ..agree or not ..??
 
the randoms are almost always speechless. great capture!
 
Hey +Tom Anderson, could you upload a full resolution picture? I noticed that you've got a D4, 16MP camera. I would love to use this as my desktop wallpaper. Thanks :-)
 
Very Brutalist. In Portsmouth, UK, there was an entire shopping centre built like this, and this mass of concrete reminds me of it. Search for The Tricorn Centre, Portsmouth - in its day, a fine example of Brutalist design that came to be loved and hated in equal measure. Now (sadly) demolished.
 
Marmite Architecture ! A lot of it about these days....
 
Far too much Photoshop. Seems an extraterrestrial landscape… in a planet with three suns.
 
... impressive. Where the three suns are coming form?
 
Darth Vader:"I am your father!!!!" Luke:"F**k you dad!!!" Darth Vader:"How dare you, I thought I brought you up better." Luke:"No, its not you but isnt that the star destroyer I wanted???" LOL!!
 
Awesome pic may the force be with you...
 
If you would all quit being so shallow,, and realize that if it weren't for God 's beauty and colors he's put in this world,, we'd have no pictures to take! I see it in my peacocks every day and say "AMEN " Sorry so long!!!!
 
Star Destroyer, eh? That's a creative take.

I would have just went with a dirty joke.
 
THAT IS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME PHOTO,,,NO ONE COULD CAPTURE THAT PIC EVER,,,,, ITS IMPOS,,,, GOOD  JOB..
 
Extraordinary..!  This could easily be in the year 3000; so futuristic; it must be the lights on the water...
 
I like it a lot. Sometimes it is the things we weren't planning that turn out best.
 
Really DOES look like Star Destroyer - like a Super Star Destroyer (those really huge ones that you can see in I think Episode VI) - congrats to this fantastic shot
 
Best reason ever to take a photo.
 
I think any photo that shows extreme parallax brings a great eye-twist to the image
 
myspace trying to stay alive through another social networkish?
 
Fantastic...pic & what it made you think about...
 
Wow awesome. I mean stunning. Good work my friend !
 
So cool! I live on Ocean Blvd in Long Beach!

Reminds me of playing 'Crackdown'
 
Hey there MySpace TOM, remember Kuwait, Camp Buering MYSPACE Concert, I was a Soldier in that crowd, check out my pics please
 
Disturbed, Pussy Cat Dolls, Jessica Simpson, Filter, Carlos Mancina, Sammy ??? And the DJ that OD
 
Another good shot, Tom. You'd make a great web graphics designer. Do you have a web site?
 
Awesome pic. It's the things we don't expect that turn out so well :)
 
How much post-processing did this need? Amazing shot.
 
Six or seven years ago it wwould just looked destroyed..... Great pic tho
 
This is an amazing picture. I am just trying to think about how he took this shot
 
you have a fantastic imagenation, Ican taste it even though Im not that one how loves starwar.
 
Dude, this picture is awesome. It looks proper futuristic and oddly very colourful.  Were there any filters used?  Another great picture to be used as a potential wallpaper I feel...  Nice!
 
And not a spot of graffiti anywhere
 
Hands down, it is the most beautiful photograph i have ever seen my entire life, is that enough? 
 
awesum shot looks like under the auckland harbour bridge at night in new zealand....yah !!
 
This is a great pic, using it for my wallpaper...

Jaw dropping and inspiring image. Makes me wanna find the time to explore and see the world. Just my world is now with my family.
 
Awesomeness is the only weird I can think of
 
Fantastic capture and symmetry, wow

Lisa Ng

Tom!!  I haven't seen you since myspace collapsed back in 08..  How you been??
 
+Tom Anderson are you testing HDR Photography? an easy to use and handy HDR feature on G+ would be a big win.
 
Its Nice but is it real or fake? ???

Amazing shot! True that it looks like the Star Destroyer!
 
Ok, made me scroll back in my stream as I was passing by.  Nice one Tom.
 
It doesnt look real! all the good pics dont even look real... is tht a bridge? im also not a big star wars so i wouldnt no
