Q: Street Photography

A: Do you know?

Since there have been so many fires in California in the past couple of months, the sky has been so smoky and gray, making it next to impossible to get a nighttime city skyline shot. I've been trying for over a month now, and I think I finally got it! I think it could be a little sharper, though.

In the story My Submissions.

    Nice shot Laurie-I like the dark water contrasting the cityscape. The time of day lets the building outlines show nicely and balance with the lights.

    Love this one Laurie, and the title reminds me of an old "Tubes" song off the "What Do You Want From Live" album and I think they were even from San Francisco..........Great image and very well done.
