I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody how visited my stream the last days and either leaving some comment or fave. I am really excited about the feedback to my last two images shown here. I try to go and visit all your streams. Nevertheless this will take some time due to the amount of comments. But I am really looking forwad to see all your images...

Yet another shot from the Golden Gate Bridge. You can imagine haven´t been to San Francisco for at least 10 years this was my favorite subject to shoot. This is a 8 sec. Long Expsure using a B+W ND110 filter. Processing the image mainly in PS for toanlity and contrast improvements. B+W conversion by blending different channels. Some use of luminosity masks as well.

Technique: f/13 t: 8sec ISO: 100 focal length: 52mm on a Nikon D7000 (APS-C)

Lightroom LR 3.4 and Phostoshop CS4

    Your choice for longer exposure worked very well here Sebastian. Looks like you framed perfectly. Nice view of an iconic bridge.

    Nice work Sebastian! Climbing back up from here a couple of years ago is where I got a bad case of poison oak! :( For the trees I found my Mamiya Sekor 50mm C lens at f/32 provides the best shot. This particular lens has an additional focusing ring for what's up close. That's probably why it was $2,025 brand new and still goes for over $300 on ebay. Remember most digital images are not even full frame (35mm) or 20MP but the 6x7 film image is 4.5x the surface area at a 50MP equivalency. The bigger the neg the better! Plus I did have to wait for any breeze to subside. Can't have sharp images with with the wind blowing especially at f/32.

    ich kann mich eigentlich schwer für solche Motive begeistern, aber als ich in Edinburgh war, bin ich auch der Dimension der berühmten Fourth bridge erlegen. Vielleicht finde ich noch eine Idee für die Nachbearbeitung, dann zeig ich es auch mal hier. Also die Gestalltung des Fordergrunds wertet das Bild auf. Die Felsen sind gekonnt plaziert und die lange Belichtung macht richtig Stimmung im Wasser. Wenn man dann so ins Bild reingeht hat man die Felsen als Vergleich und empfindet die Brücke dahinter gigantisch.
