San Diego Bay is a natural harbor and deepwater port located in San Diego County, California near the US-Mexico border. It is 12 miles (19 km) long and 1 to 3 miles (1.6 to 4.8 km) wide. The bay is surrounded by the San Diego metropolitan area, which includes the cities of San Diego, National City, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach and Coronado.
Considered to be one of the best natural harbors on the west coast of North America, it was colonized by Spain beginning in 1769. Later it served, and continues to serve to this day, as a home port of major assets, including several aircraft carriers, of the United States Navy's Pacific Fleet, which is headquartered at Pearl Harbor.

The white sails really stand out on the gray hazy BG of skyscrapers
A very eye catching contrast

With the town scarapers under mist, the white sails gave a fabulous contrast.
Fine seascape scenery, dynamic scale by the speeding boat and fine clarity collected.

magnificent shot of San Diego´s skyline.I like the foreground with yachts and so huge cruise liner-they bring a lot of life and dynamic to the scene.
Excellently composed and framed shot!

A wonderful shot - I can almost feel the breeze. Those sails make superb highlights against the deep blue and the hazy buildings behind. The motor launch, with red-shirted man on board, makes a good counterpoint as it leaves its wake at a contrasting angle to the yachts. Good work.

The distance between the sail boats and the buildings is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the sail boats. The haze or light fog does not hurt the output of the colours. Have a nice day.

Do panes and now ships so well placed with the city skyscrapers at the back covered with some mist, it seems
Greetings and TFS

The boats are nicely positioned and make a pleasant pattern. The impressive background buildings add an interesting part of the picture. Good colours and composition.
