San Francisco Rainbow over the Bay Bridge

    5DMKII+16-35mm, 1/80 @ f/8.0, ISO 125.

    Wow! Mother nature granted me with one spectacular view today! A nice follow up to the lunar eclipse :P

    I've never seen a rainbow end to end like this. Such an amazing sight with the sun behind me and the shadows of the buildings reflecting in the water.

      since you altered your original post, and added your Blog, describing how you "created" the image, it appears my argument lacks merit, but in my defense, you did at first suggest you "Rolled over in bed, saw the rainbow, grabbed your camera off the coffee table and 'captured' this shot". I never suggested you fabricated the rainbow in its entirety , but that the rainbow never looked like this (complete and perfect), and in actuality, it was fabricated/generated (and of course heavy processing as well) I stand by what I said about there being alot more to taking a picture (or in this case fabricating/processing one). I'm not "jealous" as some people stated and got angry at me over my stance, I can create some amazing images with Photoshop, but that is not "my bag". Its yours though, and you do a great job doing it. OK, End. (unless of course someone baits me to retort.).

      That being said... your Disneyland Fireworks photo is laughable. For someone with your talent, to 100% fabricate fireworks and claim you captured it as deplorable. Especially when your fireworks are (in some cases) going sideways, as i said on that photo, defying the laws of gravity.

      Your recent Manhattan skyline? where people congratulate you for capturing" that? and you don't state that is fake?... come on. Im just suggesting you may want to change your Flickr name to "Mostly Photoshop".
