Long exposure photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco captured right before dawn. Releasing for free at a high resolution of 4000 x 2667 px as it does not quite meet my quality standards, you just need to click the Download button because of it's a rather large file at 6.5MB.
For the time of day the sky gave me a real challenge to work with as there was a tiny little hint of morning light starting to seep in, and combined with the high ISO I think it made the subtle gradations of colour prone to excessive noise / grain. Much of which I tried to clean up, but then some gradient banding occurred so I had to reintroduce some noise again lol
Adding insult to injury, I had merged the scene for HDR in a separate application because this particular picture seems a tad over-exposed, but it was so late at night I ended up retouching the non-HDR photo! Still a good learning experience though, and instead of scrapping it, I figure some of you may find it useful as stock as the bridge & overall composition look decent enough to me
