I love these to marvelous B&W photos - particularly the first one. A new look at the Golden Gate Bridge. Great composition, great PP.

Like the first one very much - don't like graffiti but that's personal preference. Your composition is very ordered and symmetrical with equal amounts of sky and sea and then boom! that huge black rock smashes the order and brings the image to life. Great shot! Love the black and white.

Thank you folks. I think I am pretty happy with how the 1st one turned out.

Wonderful take on an iconic landmark--the last could be a set from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. FWIW, while I definitely dig the monochrome approach to the first, I'd be curious what the second would look like in color, especially if you gave it a 60's desaturated look (Kubrick's Battle of Hue in Full Metal Jacket keeps popping in my head, since I'm thinking of films.)
