The sad truth about me is that despite being a SF Bay Area native, I haven't toured around the area all that much. To remedy that, I decided to take a trip around the embarcadero in SF. I wanted to get a unique view of the Bay Bridge, as the sky was quite nice during golden hour. Traveling light, however (I always fear that I'm going to get jumped in SF), I didn't have any filters on hand to really help out with the sky.

Anyway, I couldn't come up with a unique view, and settled for a standard tourist-mode pic:

The Bay Bridge just does not get the publicity that the GG does. You appear to have done justice to it though! I imagine in the morning sun on a clear day it would make for a nice picture as well.

I really like this one - your processing takes it out of the mundane bridge shot and makes it unusual.

Jason, I don't see any real need for filters. The sky is interesting as it is. The bridge is perfectly exposed so you can see dark detail as well as the lights. I would also like to see it in its original color since that evening sun can be really nice.
