This photos were taken from the top ofCoit Tower in San Francisco. The first is a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marina. The second is a close up of some far away buildings as the sun was setting. Both taken with my Panasonic LZ2 (a great little camera).

I love the clouds and colors in the first one. The bridge adds wonderful vertical lines and texture to the image. Nice job

I recognized that bridge the minute I saw it. Even though it is silhouetted, the San Francisco bridge is the only bridge, to my knowledge, that has that arch structure on one end. For those who didn't know, that arch was built so that the bridge would clear the historic Fort Point in that location.

I like the first shot much more than the second. I actually don't care too much for the second but I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because of the brightness of the sun and the high contrast of the buildings.

You are right, Cal. The arch was built to preserve the fort. Unfortunately, the fort is no longer open to the public. They used to offer tours and inside there was a small visitor center, a little museum and from the top,one couldenjoy the beautiful view of the SF Bay. Visitors canstill go there but they can not go in. As for the second picture, here's another one taken a few minutes (or seconds) later with the camera set at half zoom. The colors are a lot softer.
