Hello Thomas, I hope you will take my comment in the spirit in which offered.
This is a very nice image and a very bad photograph. I make a distinction between a "photograph" and an "image." Perhaps its an artificial distinction but then your image portrays an artifcial view of the world. Certainly the composition, the lines,
the overall perspective of the bridge and city is dramatic and powerful. The idea
of going there in the first place was / is worthy. My objection is to the alteration of
the scene itself.....for what purpose I wonder? Was not the original scene able to stand on its own? I suspect it would be. I suspect the unadulterated photograph would be more powerful if, less dramatic (perhaps) then this computer generated artiface. You obviously have a good eye.....my suggestion is use your eye more and the computer less.

Your work is incredible Thomas. I'd love to see a photo of the Oakland Bay Bridge. One of my favorite bridges. It's span and 5 lighted arches are always a mesmerizing sight whenever I am in San Francisco. I hope one day you will photograph it and I will have the pleasure of viewing it through your eyes. Great work.
