This view of the Bay Bridge in San Francisco was taken well before sunrise. I ended up liking this "vintage" version better than a sunrise image I captured later. This photo has a different mood with the sepia tones, as if it was photographed late at night. It feels quiet to me, without distractions, and the architecture somehow becomes more powerful.
The iconic Golden Gate Bridge is beautiful, but I had more fun photographing this bridge.
For this image, I used Topaz Detail - Desaturated Blush, one of my new favorite Photoshop plugin filters! It can create very interesting variations of the original. Try it and see.
Make great pictures.
