Ok yeah, I know, everybody who went to SF did this picture but I like it anyway ;)
The angle is maybe a bit different than what you see on postcards.

Very powerful image. Great use of diagonals and the contrast between the red of the bridge and the blue/white of the sky is terrific. The amount of detail retained in the underside of the bridge is impressive as it would have been very easy to lose this given the brightness of the surrounding areas.
Very good work.

I think that the PoV chosen is indeed and unconventional one and is much more interesting than the typical tourist/postcard shot. The detail on the underside of the bridge is indeed impressive, along with the way the ironwork of the roadway dominates the shot, as opposed to the towers (as in most "conventional" pictures). One thing though, have you done any postprocessing yet? Your photo might benifit from a levels adjustment as well as maybe some sharpening.
