Ferry Building/Pier 14 - San Francisco, CA (Part 2)

A bit over a week back (on 10-12-2013), there was a small photowalk in San Francisco, CA that I had attended. We took photos in the Columbus Tower area and the San Francisco Ferry Building area. I will be splitting the photos into 2 parts. In these 2 parts, I will have photos of the Columbus Tower, the Transamerica Pyramid, California Street, the San Francisco Ferry Building, and photos from Pier 14.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best sunset and night shots of San Francisco, use this link. To view all of my photos from that photowalk, use this link.

Today will be the photos from the San Francisco Ferry Building and Pier 14.

Message from the Photographer: Being a US National Parks lover, I have created a Google+ community and a Google+ fan page dedicated to US National Park Photography. If you are interested, please join! You can find the community here and the fan page here. Also second part of my message. Remember that a few month back I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada? I always shoot RAW which requires post processing, but right now I am done with the main processing part. What I am currently on is what I call the "black and white run" which I check to see which photos I like to process in black and white, and process them that way! Once I am done, I will begin posting them here on my blog, and I will also begin setting up my portfolio. :) Hope you enjoy!

Long exposure of the San Francisco Ferry Building. The distortion you see on the photo was due the fact that the photo was shot at 16mm. 

Here is a black and white process of the above photo. 

Here is the park near the Ferry Building. You can see the Bay Bridge off in the distance. 

Long exposure of the Embarcadero still standing in that park near the Ferry Building.

After the Ferry Building, the photowalk group split. The others went home, I went to Pier 14 to shoot more photos. Here is a photo from Pier 14 of the Bay Bridge and San Francisco at night. Off in the distance is Rincon Park. You might recall this park from a blog post I posted before. 

More photos of San Francisco at night from Pier 14. You can see the tip of the Transamerica Pyramid in the center and the Ferry Building is off to the right. 

While Treasure Island was completely not visible to the naked eye at night, I wanted to see what a long exposure would look like. I shot the rest of these photos at the end of Pier 14. This photo is of the Bay Bridge and Treasure Island. I had no clue there were 2 lights shining up at the sky on the island at night.

A low angle shot of Pier 14 with San Francisco in the background. 

If you didn't notice on that first shot I took of this scenery, the moon caused a bit of a starburst at the top of the image. Since the moon was higher off in the sky, I decided to try another shot for a cleaner look. 

Now walking back to the Ferry Building and back to the BART station to get home, I shot off 2 long exposures of the Embarcadero.
