THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE

Artist's Description


SOMETIMES, FOG OR OTHER THINGS CAN PREVENT TAKING A GOOD SHOT OF “THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE”. ON THIS DAY, AUG. 29 2010, SEVERAL OF US BUBBLERS TOOK A DRIVE OVER TO THE MARIN HEADLANDS. WE MET UP BEHIND THE COAST GUARD STATION THAT IS LOCATED BY THE NORTH END OF THE BRIDGE AND FROM THERE WE TOOK SEVERAL WALKS AND DRIVES OVER THE FIRST HALF OF THE DAY. BY THE TIME LUNCH ROLLED AROUND, I THINK ALL OF US WERE READY FOR A BREAK AND SOME DELICIOUS LUNCH. WHEN I TOOK THIS IMAGE, I WANTED TO MAKE IT MORE CLEAR THAN IT WAS WITH THE HAZE, SO SINCE I WASN’T ABLE TO DO THAT,,,I USED THE FILTER OPTION POSTER EDGED AND THEN I SHARPENED IT TWO TIMES. ONCE OVERALL AND ONCE ON THE EDGES. THIS IS AN EASY WAY TO SAVE AN IMAGE THAT MAY NOT BE QUITE WHAT YOU WANTED, BUT YOU DIDN’T WANT IT TO GO UNUSED AS WELL. THIS ALSO WORKS FOR IMAGES THAT YOU SHOOT THROUGH YOUR WINDSHIELD, WHEN THE WINDSHIELD MAY NOT BE IT’S CLEANEST. I HAD A GOOD TIME ON THIS DAY AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE PHOTO WALKS WITH ESTES, LINDA, NANCY AND TAMA. AS WELL AS ANY OTHER BUBBLERS THAT WISH TO JOIN US. I USED MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D ALONG WITH MY CANON 100-300MM TELEPHOTO MACRO LENS TO GET THIS SHOT. IF I HAD USED A SMALLER FOCAL LENGTH, I WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET THE ENTIRE BRIDGE. BUT, THIS LOOKS OK FOR ME.
