Lots to choose from. Coit Tower is a nice place to do cityscapes and has a nice view of Golden Gate at sunset. A little more difficult to get to, but cross the Bay Bridge to Treasure Island for another nice view of the city. From the west side, there are some good views from the Twin Peaks area.

Lots of other places too… Powell St for a classic cable car pic, the Stockton tunnel for long exposure, The Ferry Building, Golden Gate park, and anywhere along Market St.

San Francisco is a cool city. Have a great time.

Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and shoot the bridge and city at sunset from the Marin Headlands, and/or Point Bonita Lighthouse. Its a classic view of the city. Take a long lens and there is no end of stuff to shoot.

Here's another vote for the Marin Headlands. Baker Beach is really good for sunset shots of the Golden Gate Bridge...


Just shut up and smile...
