An old film shot of San Francisco Bay in 2008. Taken with Fuji 200 iso film. I have blurred most of the sky added density using levels & a little saturation then sharpened 20%. Also made sure the bridge pylon was vertical. The original had a slight lean. Shot in late November.

Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Never get tired of seeing this great monument. Beautiful view with the light hitting the bridge enhancing the colors.The yellow water taxi is a nice addition. The blue water makes a nice color contrast.

Good Morning Chris,
I like the views of this iconic bridge. What I particularly like about your shot is the shadow which assists the leads into the distance. The speeding boat produces another lead with a completely different orientaion. An interesting shot to scrutinise.
Have a lovely day,

This is a fine pov capturing this famous gate under warm light and stunning sky. The activities on the saturated blue water are stunning in the frame.
Thanks and have a nice nice day.

one of my favourite places and never been with weather clear enough to get a shot like this! Striking colours and light that cast a magical shadow across the bay. Excellent transition into digital - has not lost any of its appeal and impact.

The length of the bridge is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the Golden gate bridge. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2012-04-12 5:25
The well-defined colors, are pleasant. The bridge is particularly well emphasized by its color, light, and its place in the photo. A nice pretty picture. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Le Golden Gate semble bien populaire aujourd'hui. Sous tous les angles il faut avouer qu'il est spectaculaire et très haut. La luminosité est excellente.

Good quality for a scanned film, I have got a lot of photos of a pre-digital epoque. Good capture of the famouse bridge in the sunset lights. TFS!
Zengi001 (2499) 2012-04-12 6:42
I love the colors, and the contrast of colors, and the effect of slightly shifted color balance.
Evocative shot! Very well done,
bona (12457) 2012-04-12 7:58
I loved the title of your photo. Nice colors too! The point of view was well chosen. I would suggest use clone to remove the part of the boat on the left side.

Dobar rad sa Pentaxom i filmom Fuji.
Most koji je mnogo puta snimljen, svaka nova fotografija je posebna i jednistvena ...
Lepo mesto sa pogledom na crveni most i camce, dobra kompozicija.
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast, perspektiva i prikaz lepim bojama.
Sve najbolje sa lepim secanjem na posetu mostu.
Good work with the Pentax and Fuji film.
Most who recorded many times, each new image is special and unique ...
Nice place with a view to the red bridge and boats, good composition.
Good image sharpness, contrast, perspective view and beautiful colors.
All the best with beautiful memories of a visit to the bridge.

This was obviously a scan from a negative, but the quality is excellent. Beautiful strong colours and contrasts, I particularly like how the blues of the sea and sky contrast with the warm light. Nice work and I wish you a lovely day.

very nice postcard from S. Francisco. Fine POV and presentationof famous bridge. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.

un très grand classique qui ici révèle un côté d'ancienne photo par ce petit manque de définition et aussi ces couleurs fort saturées. Une photo qui ne donne pas toute la dimension de ce magnifique pont.
My best regards.
jjcordier (75148) 2012-04-13 5:01
Un bon point de vue sur ce célèbre pont coloré. La composition, la lumière (qui donne cette ombre en arc de cercle)et les couleurs sont belles.
Cricri (104433) 2012-04-13 8:33
Belle vue de ce pont rouge célèbre, un cadrage particulier et réussi, des couleurs et une lumière agréable, belle réalisation

Ciao Chris, great POV on fantastic bridge, excellent clarity, wonderful bright colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
macjake (54930) 2012-04-13 14:12
Its not the best in terms of overall quality, but its the scene itself that i enjoy so much.
It brings back so many positive memories from my trip to SF less than 1 year ago.
I like the shadow of the bridge in the water, and it's really cool to see the Curve aswell, indicating that the bridge deck is not flat and linear.
Enjoy your day
Didi (56057) 2012-04-13 16:47
You stil using silver films; good scan quality.
Never mind if the colours are a little bit strong.
Greetings from Orleans.

good p.o.v., nice vivid colors and light.
rabdelnoor (3421) 2012-04-15 10:08
Sure this bridge is one of with the most photos on the world, but you surely got an wonderful and original picture, with a good work on intensefying the colours and contrast, and a beautiful POV. Good work.
dkmurphys (48088) 2012-04-15 23:43
Fine color composition with all those picturesque elements. Well seen scene, good work!
mirosu (13190) 2012-04-19 4:08
Very good POV but a bit unsharp and slightly oversaturaded.
kiks (11749) 2012-04-19 10:14
Great POV and framing and i love the effect of the shadowline of the bridge on the composition. Personaly i found the saturation a bit to much and i miss some sharpness. I think 2 things easy to correct with simple PP.
