Interesting how one can develop a relationship with a subject of photography and want to go back there often. A very beautiful image with excellent exposure control once again. Question: How about cropping off the building in the bottom background and cloning out what will remain of the mast bottom centre? I think it will enhance the image of the bridge even more.Best wishes.

Hello Roger, never having visited this iconic bridge, the composition as it is, is perfect for me, placing the end of the bridge firmly on solid ground!
The use of perspective control is interesting, as getting the verticals just right is not always the easiest task!
I like the idea of going regularly back to the same theme.
Love the large format of this shot, and the b/w.
Tfs, regards Jean.

An interesting shot from an amazing engineering structure...+
I also suggest to crop the photo from the bottom...TFS

The tonal range you have created does give interesting depth to this image.A striking image captured of the Golden Gate Bridge with a mixture of natural and man made fixtures.An excellent architectural presentation with no distortions.Very well done MF.

I agree with you that a shot like this should have the verticals corrected. Lens distortion has its place, but not in a composition like this. I like the way this is composed too, nicely balanced. B&W suits this well also, nice tonal range.
Is that a lighthouse on top of the fort?

Very good B/W shot and great perspective with the bridge, the détails and the DOF are perfect for the composition.
Excellent architectural view, TFS.
My best regards.
