    golden gate bridge

    Here is a pic a took at the golden gate bridge. i like it, but i could use some C&C. i like the size ratio between the barge and bridge. i also like the shadow of the bridge on the water. i used an A100 and tamron 17-50. i wished i would have gotten the top of the bridge closed to me.

    Great picture! Seems a bit hazy, so I did a slight curves adjustment and touched up the color as well

    A Circular Polarizer (67mm CPL) would be great!

    thanks dr4gon, i've been on the site before(been awhile) and chatted with Don about some of my pics. i also listened to his advice, hint tamron 17-50,18-250 and no kit lens. you know that makes Don happy. i used auto white balance on the bridge pic, would it have made a difference if i would have set the white balance?

    The top of the bridge on the close side would really frame the shot I think. And a CP maybe bring up the water a bit and make the clouds pop. still a very cool pic, are you in or near S.F. ? Some great photo opps there

    When you run out of frame, consider taking several shots from the same vantage point and Photomerge it in Adobe Photoshop. You would be surprised what you don't miss when you do that.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
