One last shot with the golden gate bridge in it, for now. Though, the bridge isn’t really the main point of interest in this image. There were a lot of flowers on the path in the foreground, and the bridge was playing peekaboo with karl the fog, so I decided to try and get a shot featuring the flowers.
If you take the last exit before crossing the bridge, going northbound, you can park in a lot just down the street, and get some nice views of the bridge, when its not fogged in. There are lots of tourists taking photos, and lots of locals on bikes. We nearly got rundown, and I’m sure it happens on a daily basis, with as much foot and bike traffic as there is.
I shot this with the native camera app. Then, Snapseed to start off the edit. I felt like I wanted some more texture, so I tried out Stackables, instead of Mextures, this time. I really liked the way I was able to emphasize the fog with an overlay in Stackables. Next, I wanted to bring out a little more detail, so I used SimplyHDR. Then, I thought I would see how a painterly app would change the image. Brushstroke was the second one I tried, and it worked out very well. My only problem with it was the repeating brush patterns in the sky, so I ended up using ImageBlender to mask out some of the painterly effect in the sky.
Would you hang this one in your home? I think I might 🙂
