Nice shot, really like the unobstructed skyline in the backdrop. I personally would have shot this a bit earlier, while the sky still had a blue cast from the waning light of the set sun.

Very nice work.  I like it.

I usually shoot the other bridge. You know, the orange one.  I'll have to go home the other way sometime.

Thank you Nevada5, I like the other bridge too, too much may be, but someone offered to take be down there to take picture of the city through the Bay Bridge I cannot refuse it since I always wanted to shoot from there and never knew how to get there.

It's a strong, striking composition with lovely detail and color.   And one of my favorite genres.

But I'm missing mid-tone shadows in areas that I would have wanted to see some definition or at least outlines. So I'd ask of the blocked range of shadow tones was a choice, or could it be related to a difference in monitor calibration (or, working in a really dark room while processing)? It's only because I respect this that I wonder if what I see (heh - I mean DON'T see) is intentional.

Very well done Nam!
In reply to Geesix, Dec 10, 2013

This image begs to be a poster sized print. It is well done in every respect -- excellent exposure, good DOF, and outstanding composition and point of view.

Excellent work.

God Bless,

Greg
