And here three from beneath the bridge as I walked from the parking area on the west side to the overlook on the east side. These are for the engineers among us... and the architects Scott...




I was surprised to learn that portions of the bridge over land ride on rubber cushions tended to isolate the bridge from earthquake jolts.



Here is a link to some facts about the bridge.

Golden Gate Bridge Facts

For instance, the weight of the cables and suspender cables is 24,500 TONS...

Here's another rather dramatic photo taken from beneath the bridge, this time with the 24 f/2.8 N.C. AI'd that was converted in Silver Efex Pro 2.

Rubber cushions - those are probably the size of a small car? Hard to get some sense of scale from the image.

Very nice series Curtis! I do like these a lot. The "spidery tangle" of structural bracing in the first is delightful. The last image is nicely framed. That rubber isolator pad is certainly substantial. Looks like thay have placed some steel guards around the perimeter just in case things get bouncing around a bit during a quake.

One more from the air show, run through some Camera Raw magic (I make my own Nik filters)

D7000, 105mm f2.5 @f4.0 1/1250s iso 100. Cropped, split toned, post vignette, saturation changes, curves, plus some aggressive sharpening in Photoshop, as well as some multiply overlay of the image on itself.







link to the somewhat duller original

And a comarison of 100% zoom detail before/after showing how much you can pull out of a JPEG - I need to find the RAW files from this trip!

And perhaps I can quiet Reagan with ONE photo of women from this series...


Or maybe two...


She was posing for her friend, unaware that with a 24mm lens she landed at the edge of my shot...

Another nice one! The b&w conversion gives it a very nostalgic look.

Peter, love this shot and your magic PP. In my opinion it's the best image from your recent plane-series. The glossy look is a perfect match for the subject.

Thank you Reagan, Laura, and Chin for the comments on the snow scene. Just as cold today but not as much snow flurry activity. Fingers crossed for 50 degrees tomorrow.

You're right Scott. Amazing to thing that the whole platform is simply floating atop these rubber cushions, moving with changes in temperature and load as well as earthquake shocks. Structural design is fascinating but it is good to remember the technology available when this bridge was designed was quite a bit more rudimentary than it is today. An amazing design and construction feat.

Curtis, good job on the bridge-details! And I like the B&W-view - agree with Scott about the nostalgic look.

A couple of shots from the bridge overlook of landscaping... taken with the 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd.



I thought a closer look at the cactus plants in black and white might be interesting...

Ronny, love the shot with the 135mm, pretty, um, bokeh.

Curtis, love your SF shots. Wish I had more time with better weather when I was there. I still have about 500 images to go through, including some my 7-year old niece took with my camera. Girl has talent in spades!

Peter, I will probably be sending you a message soon regarding your post work. I love it! The shot of the P51 is awesome.

Just thought I would give a heads up: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1201925

Nikon just released firmware upgrades for the Nikon D600, D800, D800E, D3, D3X, D3S, D4, D3200 and D7000 DSLR cameras.

How'd you know I have been watching his youtube clips lately? He does like Clarity - lots of Clarity. I don't quite go to the 100% he does. Learned a lot from his stuff, especially about how to use tools in Camera Raw such as the adjustment brushes. I guess the vignette I added to the final frame above is also influenced by his massive use of vignetting.


Lucky guess? I really like his style as well as his teaching. I've learned a lot from him, even though he's a Canon shooter! Have you seen the 15 minute challenge where he's at the aviation park?

I've seen both aviation park episodes - he did a "revisited" second 15 minute at the same site recently with some Canon mirrorless body. My chacne to shoot planes only comes around once a year, at Oshkosh, and most of them are in really nice shape (although the Mustang above is missing a bolt, if you look closely).

Here are a couple of shots taken yesterday with Nikki. I'm still focused on the early part of the day beneath the fog. The first two are from Baker Beach and the last is from the road leading to the Palace of the Legion of Honor.

Thank you for the design detail pictures and the link. As the rubber isolators technology was born in the lates '60, I think the GGB isolators have been placed after the bridge construction, it means they are looking after the bridge.


28-45mm f/4.5 @ 28mm and f/11, I really like this zoom.
