San Francisco skyline - Potrero Hill


A classic view of San Francisco from a area that I have meant to photograph for a while now, but the conditions never matched that of the vision I had planed out in my mind. Either the light wasn't right, or I would get rained / fogged out. Whatever it was, the scene just never worked right for me.


This past week I spent the majority of my evenings running around San Francisco trying to capture some of the "life" of the city while working in some iconic spots in the process. While I have photographed a few of these icons over the past couple of years, most everything I have on my hard drives did not fit the requirements of the project I was working on. Each image needed to be in color, that was my first challenge. Most everything I do these days is intended to be B&W. Second, the images needed to be composed in horizontal format. Capturing city life with tall buildings in wide format is not easy. In fact, at times I felt it was near impossible, but I did what I could.


Though I was very happy with the warm golden orange tones of the color version of this scene, I decided to run this image through the new Silver Efex Pro 2 plug in and was more than happy with this version.


Thank you for having a look... I appreciate it.


Its nice like this
