   Wow nice shot! Everyone seems to like to get the GG from baker beach at sunset. Even Scott Bourne did a speacial of making the image pop!

Welcome to dyxum - a great start with this beautiful image. I was hoping to get to to San Francisco in May but the trip has been canceled. I was imagining different perspectives of the Golden Gate and wondered if there was anything nice to be had from either side of the bridge on the Frisco side - now I know there is a great perspective that is different from the iconic view from the hilltop across the bay.

As to leveling/tilting, the bridge support tower (?) is leaning just a bit to the right and is disconcerting a bit.

Lovely image. This shows the value of having an interesting object in the foreground when doing wide angle. I like the way it leads the viewer into the image. I also like the slight softness in the breaking waves. What shutter speed did you use panyawong?

My only minor nit-pick is that I would have liked to see a tiny bit more sky above the bridge (easily done in PS).

Thank you for your comments. Yes, I always have problem with horizon line, could not seem to get it level.

Frankman, it's 2 sec. I use f/22 as polarizer to get the shutter speed low.

This is a great photo-I love the view of the bridge from this angle-completely different from others I've seen

Maybe i would have liked it even more with a little less foreground and more sky. Nevertheless, an excellent photo because of the slow water and the different view .
