Hi Leica,
Fantastic capture of the Golden Gate, good contrast between the colours, I especially like the exposition of the clouds. The enlightment is also impressive. Dramatic scene with the dark clouds. Great shot! Perhaps a frame and some titles would have been useful to look like as a real postcrad. Bu never mind, the photo itself is splendid! TFS.
Kind regards,

Hi Leica

Without a doubt, you had a good taste!
this icon of SF is wonderful.
A beautiful vision and of wonderful colors.
A different angle and beautiful shot!
Congratulations, a beautiful entrance to the theme!


Hi Leica.
What a dramatic colours and dynamic composition.
Really good contrast between red and blue.

Bravo Leica,
One of the shot I have seen of this bridge here on TL . The three stories building down on the left gives a good scale to show the size of the bridge . You have done a real nice work with the colors and your compostion . Great addition to the theme .

Hello Leica!
Great effect in your picture!
Excellent PP work!
The sky is lovely and the water, fantastic!
Good perspective!
Best regards!

it's so beautifuL .. a different view
thanks for sharing

Hi Leica

Dramatic pp work! I was looking at the footing of the bridge (the middle one) - it seems to be floating above the water. Is it supposed to be like that?


Hi Lecia
thanks for your nice postcard.
It reminds me of our visit to SF.
actually, I have a shot from the same spot this one was taken.
good capture of the bridge. I like the tones of the water.

Great shot! Amazing colors - love the intensity... TFS

Hi Leica.

I just can stop looking at nicely shot hdr images! :-) This one is, except it is "unnatural" (and I think in good way) very nice composed vith great pov. It's a pitty you haven't wrote something in the note.

Good one Leica
The post processing you did has given the scene a very eye-catching look. Very colourful and quite dramatic.
But unfortunately the image is tilted to the left - and water is never crooked.
The clouds look great too.

Nice photo, horizon slightly off level, well captured


26 points sur cette photo en quelques heures : wow ! Bravo !

C'est vrai qu'elle interpelle parmi les autres, avec ses couleurs vives. Elle me rappelle un film de Hitchcock ;)





Very nice the perspective of the bridge with the vivid colours and light.
Best wishes,

  • Great

Hi Leica,
Great effect-- nice display and a good contribution. Excellent colors/tones. TFS Julie

the PP on the cloud is not enough natural to be a postcard I would buy
second point, looks a bit tilted to the left, 1 or 1.5░
POV and composition is really good for a postcard

great one
and dont use notes
lets the pic speaks for itself

Great colors and composition .
