This is a picture of the San Francisco Bay Bridge taken last week on a sunny day from Justin Herman Plaza in downtown San Francisco. I should have bumped the ISO up to around f8 to bring the cables more into focus.

Not sure you need to bump the ISO up much. You could easily have dropped the shutter speed to 1/125 or 1/100 which would have gotten you closer to F8, and the image is so bright you could possibly have underexposed a bit. Nice composition with the bridge, palm trees, road marking and vehicles are making sets of parallel lines.
