I would love all opinions. I am very new to photography so photography a landmark that is photographed so often could give me great feedback. Thank you in advance!

I really like the first one, always wanted to take one like that. May I ask where is the location for the 1st and last photo, I never can find it while going around SF.

I like 1, but I would have tried to get a bit more of the sky in the shot and less of the water reflections (they're a bit distracting).

Edit: Also, 1 seems a little crooked to me, makes me want to turn my head. Maybe try to rotate it in PS?

2 is pretty great- I wonder what it looks like in color.

3 seems to be a little too far to the right, but still good. I like the color.

4 is cool. If I were there I would try a really long exposure to get the water to "melt together". The waves in the water are a bit distracting.

Thank you for the advice! I just purchased a cable release today on Amazon so hopefully I can begin to play with the longer exposures and get the look in the water I want.

Euro- Those pics are taken at Baker Beach which is on the opposite side of the freeway from the "lookout" there are signs leading to this location.

Nice photos :) just FYI it wouldn't take a very long exposure to 'melt' the waves. Certainly not longer than 30 seconds!

I like the black and white shot :)

#1 for the win. I agree it should have more sky but still a great shot!

Nice shots. Tried over summer vacation to get a similar look but the fog held me back

I really like the 1st and 4th photos. The different color lights dancing on the water is a nice effect.
