Yerba Buena Gardens, San Francicsco

1/60, f/2.8, !SO 6400


I was at the Samovar Tea Room for an event and couldn't help but notice the view outside the window. So of course i snuck out and snapped pictures for most of the night :P


I didn't have a tripod or anything to stabilize my camera so i maxed the ISO and used mega noise reduction on LR3 to make the photo less hazy. There is still some noise, but not too shabby. The sky was super foggy so it had that etheral feel already.

    Beautiful - the fog lit by the city lights as the back-drop really adds to it, but your color and detail make it a great shot.

    This is marvelous, Lisa! Looks like you were standing right on that little ledge. Amazing with the fog. I'm sure you can't wait to go back and explore that place with a tripod. Have fun!
