Another shot from my trip to San Francisco. I was happy to capture a few stars in this photograph. It's normally so foggy in SF, that I didn't expect it. Be sure to expand it full screen with the tip I mentioned in this post: http://bit.ly/IbhD6L This is a view of the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco downtown skyline. I lived there during my college years (in Berkeley) and never got to visit much (too busy studying and the BART was expensive on my (lack of) student budget). I'm really starting to love SF, though... as a Giants fan, I'll get to visit a lot this year. :-)

Beautiful shot! I miss the city now. Going to catch a Giants game for sure.
 
heh +Selina Elizabeth Kyle You need to see this one BIG ... even big here and squashed to JPG, it has lost some detail... :-/ looks much better in non-squashed photoshop on my Mac :-)
 
the bridge and city lights/exposure is great, but i love that the stars made it into the show, too!
 
very nice.. was this one long exposure or several
 
hi +Eric Richards I think I masked together 3 photos for this shot (buildings, water, and sky). Another one with no HDR. I'm guessing the longest was 30 seconds because that's all my camera does
 
ah thx +Tom Anderson for the info, it's hard to tell since it's done very well.. no obvious 'hdr' look to it.. hope to get there myself oneday! i also like long exposure water shots like a few u had put up before.. both hdr and long exposure give cool surrealistic effects it seems :)
 
Beautiful photo, both technically and aesthetically
 
Thanks for reminding me why I LOVE living in the Bay Area! Absolutely Beautiful Photo!
 
Bravo!, This is really beautiful!
 
wahhh..................nice pic..
 
Tom Anderson,What a beautiful night view!!!!
I like it so much.
 
What type of camera do you use, Tom? You took an absolute BEAUTIFUL picture.
 
Did you use a software to make the pic look like that? Or does the camera take beautiful pics like that? Sorry for the questions but I am searching for a camera I can do photography with, and Nikon is the number 1 brand I'm going with! :) (And I'm looking up the D4 cam as I type this, lolz

What an awesome shot. San Fran is so beautiful at night
 
I want to take the next flight to San Fran just by looking at this pic. <3 So awesome!!!
 
Oz awaits just over the magic bridge that crosses golden waters. Extraordinary.
 
+Elias Borrego I think you've got to have an exceptionally keen eye to notice the difference between Canon, Nikon and the other top brands. I think your main consideration would be your budget and what you plan to do with it... Then you can see what camera you can afford that does what you want. The Sony NEX-7 (the first "mirrorless" camera that is approaching pro level may even be the way to go... I think its around $1,500 ... I did sharpen this photo and did some tricks in Photoshop to make the colors pop a little. Most of my photos are extremely processed.. i.e. there was a lot of work done in software. I think if you're going to really get into photography, you'll probably just fine that you want to use software as well (rather than thinking about what a camera can do vs.. what software can do). If you're really into the technicalities of cameras, check out +Gordon Laing and www.cameralabs.com :-)
 
You're a bad guy what are you doing on G+
 
Very nice..Very painterly and seems poetic to me
 
Bruh. Time for a new profile pic. 
 
Tom, Please update your profile picture please. You have looked the same for at least 6 years!

The photo is pleasant. Equally pleasing is to know about your responsible attitude during yourvstudent days to your studies keeping the budget in mind.
That is why you are enjoying success now. Best Wishes.
 
Great picture! Going there in June then to Vegas! Seriously can't wait.

Nice picture of S.F. without the fog.
 
Love This! I just came back from a trip to Napa Valley and San Francisco! Took a tour of Muir woods and Sausalito which were beautiful! Saw Lombard Street and the 7 painted ladies- so much fun!!! Thanks for sharing!
 
makes all life's worries fade away in the peace that it exudes!you a photographer?
 
i love the stars and how you create depth in the pic w/the angle of the bridge. it's like i'm there in the SF atmosphere, real enough that i can touch the water and feel the temperature thru my computer. neat!
 
don't i have you as a friend on my space? ohhh well
 
it is such a wonderful view, very refreshing. Dreaming to see it personally rather than on pic.

Bridges are so overdone, I see at least one shot of a bridge every day... Can't impress me anymore.

I'm glad you like my home town. If you want to see the ultimate panorama of the City, stop by SmugMug. I have a 36 ft. wide print there @ 240DPI. And Chris has a giant one too.
