San Francisco, CA – Hyde Street (HDR)

When I was in SF a few weeks back, I had a little time in the early AM to catch some pics near the Wharf.    It was around 6:30 AM and semi-dark out.   The streets were very quiet.   I set up at the bottom of Hyde Street just on the tip of the pier and took this HDR.   Thanks to Nik Software Silver Efex Pro after processing m HDR’s…I now have come to enjoy B&W photos!    This software is amazing!   The black and white conversion has so many tones!!   I liked the color version, but the B&W wins out!

Just at the bottom right is the Hyde Street Cable Car turnaround.   Here you can catch a cable car and have a great ride up that big hill!  If you have ever visited San Francisco or will do so in the future..its is one of my favorite US cities!  I’ll be back soon!
