Here is the creative version of Endless Pier. It was more challenging of a project than I originally anticipated when I started it. I’ll just leave it at that for now so you can figure it out.
During my Sunday walk in San Francisco, I really liked the pier and the potential it brought for getting some good shots. For this one I wanted to play with symmetry. The camera is just slightly above the ground, as dead-center as possible. There are breaks in the symmetry with the Bay Bridge being visible through the bars and Yerba Buena island looming on the right side.
Not that it is a surprise, but I did some post processing on this to get the tones as I saw them. It was an incredibly bright day and this represents my view of the pier by the time I got to it. Wanting shade, feeling like the colors were all just running together and high contrast was everywhere.
I have a creative interpretation of this shot that I am working on. Stay tuned.
As the sun is setting, the surfers are coming in for the day.
