I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

City Hall, Can You Figure Out What's Different?

A slap on the back and a firm handshake to the reader who can tell me what I did differently this time as opposed to before.


  1. You took it at night from the totally opposite direction and used a tripod? How do I collect if I fluked it???

  2. Lets See:
    Its later at night
    Different side of the building
    Lower Angle
    Different White Balance
    Faster shutter
    F4 vs F16
    Super Hight ISO
    No Tripod

    Nice Shot


  3. I don't know and I don't know that I particularly care, because it is a beautiful photo of an amazing building.

  4. I'm not sure if i am aloud to comment since you explained about the lens to me last night . . .hint to those of you who are guessing . . .she used a special lens.

  5. I can not venture a guess as I do not even know how to use a point and shoot, but this is visually stunning.

  6. It seems to me it is darker, so probably you took it later at night. You came closer or otherwise removed the raw of trees from the foreground, which simplified composition, and you stand higher, i think (it might be just perspective). At first I thought it was tripod, but they both look sharp.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
