Golden Gate Bridge
Lens: DA 15mm F4 Camera: K5 ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: Above 6s 
Posted By: pixie, 07-22-2014, 01:24 AM

Tried at the Golden Gate Bridge tonight. The K5/DA 15 Ltd combo did the job again I think. This is what I have come up with in processing the RAW file. There is room available there. Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks, Andre.

I like'em. I think #2 works for me the best. Not sure there is anything I would change. Maybe in #2 take some off he right hand side in a crop (without losing any of the bridge of course).

#2 looks great! Well composed and taken. But what's generating the reflection on the Pacific side? Full moon? A really unusual looking effect.

Jerry, it is the lamps above the sidewalk on the city side. The straight edge line of the reflection is created by the Pacific side of the bridge as the light from those lamps can only reach the water after it clears the bridge deck. As for the various shapes inside the reflection, it must other obstacles in the way of the light. Wondered myself.... It's interesting how some details show in a photo that you don't quite see with the naked eye.

I definitely prefer the first one especially with the darker sky. The little bit different composition in #2 is nice but it's still #1 for me.
