    Hey Ajith, cool shot! Where was it taken? I'm looking for the perfect spot to shoot that damn bridge I find it pretty challenging - not only it's a toll bridge, but I couldn't really find parking in the spots where I'd like to shoot. All freeways..

    Well, you've done pretty well so far. This one is good and I was wondering where you took it from. I walked across it quite a number of years ago.

    Hi Agaace ,

    Here is the google map location

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...01929&t=h&z=16

    Expecting more GG Bridge shots from this location

    If you are going from south; cross the GG bridge and take the "Alexander Ave" exit, take a sharp turn onto "E Rd" then straight down a bit ..

    Donald - Hope I covered you too.

    Re: Golden Gate

    Thanks a million for the location Ajith!
    Donald, mine was shot from the Treasure Island. I was in San Francisco just for a weekend and only had about 1 hour "free time" in my "busy" schedule to go shooting, so this is pretty much a random shot. But I'm hoping to get back there next week for longer and with a less busy schedule (less parties ), so hopefully I can make it for a sunrise one day

    Please do not take this the wrong way because I believe you to be a very capable photographer and because of that I am waiting for something to come up that has your 'style' imprinted on it. You are lucky enough to have the exotic locations but I am not seeing any personality in your work yet. Nothing that says "that's an Agata shot". I guess it takes time to develop but my most graphic example would be to look at the development of Donald's work. He has suddenly hit a style that is very much his own. You need to get that Agata style showing through because your work deserves it

    I like it Agaace....while I tend to like more dramatic and bold shots, this has a peaceful and pastel look and feel and whould fill a niche on someone's wall.

    Re: Golden Gate

    Many thanks for all the comments!
    Steve, I think you nailed it down - I know I don't have my own style. I try not to worry too much, friends tell me it will come naturally with time and I shouldn't try to enforce it. Just do my stuff the way I like it, and my style will come. Btw "exotic" is very subjective, depending where you live - to me UK is exotic for example, as I've only been there once (not including Northern Ireland and changing flights at airports), visited London in 1993, and that's it! I've been craving to go to Scotland but never made it. Exotic or not, a good photographer will produce interesting shots no matter what country they live in.. I guess I need to try harder.

    Ajith, Agata

    Thanks for the journey down memory lane.

    It was in 1990 that I walked it. We actually walked from downtown (a little bed & breakfast hotel we stayed in close to Chinatown), right along the waterfront, out over the bridge and onto Sausalito. Bought a couple of prints from a photographer called Mark Reuben, who had a nice shop there (don't know if he still operates). They're on the wall just above me as I sit here typing.

    And then got a ferry back in the evening. That Google Map brought it all back. It was a beautiful day. I was shooting transparencies at that time and I know there's one I liked of a ship in full sail going under the bridge. Must look it out.
