i like how telephoto appears to compress distance between objects. shot from the other base of the golden gate bridge at fort point, san francisco. full view!

here's a nice interactive panorama: [link]

this picture is great. i love the composition, the surfer fore, boat middle and the bridge in the background is awesome. it just adds the bit of red to contrast the blue.

You know I've always been a fan. Amazing shot. I love it. I think I may have to break down and start working with faster film speeds.

thanks, bleedz! :) 1/1000, f11, 285mm, iso 400. it turned out dark... pushed highlights overall until losing the brightest part of the wave.

A great example of how telephoto brings the layers closer together. Good shot. :)

This one's great neo. Great how you managed to keep this all quite razorsharp. Though job doing this handheld :)

thanks, rainer! :) it's not hard at all getting sharp tele shots with canon's Image Stabilization gyro in the lens. *all* my long shots have been handheld. :D if you haven't done so already, maybe your local camera shop will let you try a few snaps with a 75-300 IS out their doorway. try 300mm at 1/100 or even slower.

but truth is, i cheated on this one ;) iso 400, 1/1000, f11. the IS provides no benefit at that speed, so i had it turned off.

a better example is parisdesserts [link] which you saw earlier. that's 75mm at 1/30!

As right now all my passion and enthusiasm goes into things alive and coming alive around me, I have little words to put here but still got the same appreciation for things I find beautiful and interesting in photography.

So this goes on my page for today because I like it and I would like to see this in real life sometime. Reason enough... let other people do the gushing for a while =D (I might be back at in the winter...!).

:eyepopping: indeed; nice shot! (how long have you been waiting for this to happen, in order to show the ""compressing distance""? =D )

From the thumbnail and small view on your user page it didn't look so interesting at first - but the Full View shows the surfer :D :D and turns a mediocre view into an outstanding composition. Funny how one small detail makes such a difference!

Very nice capture, I really like the bridge and boat which apper to be just past the waves braking line. Nice smooth easy left too, slightly onshore just enough to make it an easy fun wall...pity the water must be soooo cold! :)

I probably would have thought this was a manip if I hadn't seen people doing the same thing when I was there. Crazy
