HIT ALCATRAZ !
Going across the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, as I saw that big ship passing under, I imagined I could get some good pictures of that situation and here's one: Is it heading towards that island? Is it going to hit ALCATRAZ?

Hello Ney! Wonderful shadow here, of the bridge as the ship crosses through. And you're right, it could be on a collision course! Nice bright sunset light illuminating the containers on this heavily laden ship - nice shot.

Hi Neyvan. The name Alcatraz has special connotation for me as I remember vividly the film Birdman of Alkatraz, staring Burt Lancaster. Quite a rich composition with the shadow of the bridge, the big tanker and the island. Great colours. Best wishes. Klaudio.

ottima idea quello di riprendere il cargo per rendere più colorato il tratto di mare che conduce all'Isola di Alcatraz.
Ne hai saputo trarre una bella foto ricca di colore e ben composta con la diagonale della nave. Buona anche la saturazione. Sempre gradevoli le tue note.
Ciao e buona domenica

A fine sharp capture of this well loaded container ship. I like the warm light and colours and the shadwo play offered by the bridge.

it does look like its on course for Alcatraz! Prisoners supplies perhaps. ;-). This composition just entices us to jump aboard and drift along into SF. Love the tall shadow of the bridge that adds to this inviting effect. Wonderful!
Wishing you a pleasant Sunday. - Brian.

So that is Alcatraz in the background? It looks smaller than I would have imagined.
The freighter, bathed in a warm sunlight, cast some nice shadows on to the sea and the eye follows the path the boat is taking towards the island.
have a good sunday

I love San Francisco - I think the cargo ship is on its way to take supplies to the Bird Man of Alcatraz???
A nice picture with a good sense of humour in your notes..

This is a spectacular shot with exceptionally good and pleasing composition. The big red cargo ship is perfectly placed in the frame - heading to Alcatraz (!) - and its wake behind it helps lead the eye well into the picture. I love the long shadows cast by the bridge across the sea and the ship.
Lovely light, gorgeous colours and exquisite details and sharpness.

You have chosen an excellent angle for this shot. The warm light illuminates the ship and its cargo and brings out fantastic colours. A good idea to include the Alcatraz as a backdrop. A simple composition with few but attractive elements. Very nice work! TFS. Have a great week.
Best regards, Erling

Superb composition with this boat with its red color is a major point of attention, perfect perspective with Alcatraz Island in the distance, the sea has a beautiful color blue.
Excellent brightness and perfect sharpness.
Have a nice day.

Excellent presentation, diagonal from the bridge to the famous prison. A brand new image for perspective and color.

Good use of the diagonal angle of the vessel to 'point' towards the distant island of Alcatraz. I also took a shot of this island but it really is quite a way from the Golden Gate Bridge. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the nlue sea and orange ship. Tfs!

Great POV, good composition with a diagonal direction, amazing combination the ship with the famous Alcatraz.

To answer your question, I think it's going to pass by the island on its port side.
Beautiful shadows, nice color combination. Obviously, you had to react quickly (unless you were walking across the bridge); nice reflex!

Great sense of movement and dynamism with the view of the gigantic vessel as it crossed the bay towards the Alcatraz island and SFO city, Neyvan.
Shadows from the bridge tell me it was an afternoon light that shined upon. Well taken the moment, contrast of orange containers on the green/blue water.
Fine shot, Boa tardes,
