You don't see it this clear and this calm very often.

Your tasteful use of the foreground and the great reflectionof the bridge indicating a rare moment ofcalmness all together end insuch aimage indeed. Still,a slight adjustment at the levels to decrease the brightnessof the sea (just a tad)and the sky (especially), but preserving the rock, could even bringa little more dramatic look, IMO.

Ah,my experience so faris that; from themoment you open an image in the Photoshop (regardless its version), it lookssomehow betterwithout even touchingbutlosesthat 'extra' ambiance afterbeing saved!!Well, I save the image by the 'save as'option withoutbothering withchosingany 'Save Options' other than simply caring the format toindicate Jpeg

Curmudgeon,

Amazing shots! I'm so envious, i remeber going on holiday to the states once and we called in to Sanfrancisco, it was amazing, problem is i wasn't into photography at the time, would love to go back and shoot the bridge!

With regard your loss of data when saving for the web, have you ever tried image resizer, it's a power toy produced by Microsoft for windows xp. All you do is save an image as jpeg, right click on it and you can change the size of the image, without loss of data. That way the only loss of image quality comes from your original conversion to jpeg. Here is a link if your interested, i cant fault it, makes life really easy!
