Wow, it's been awhile since I thought about this and almost forgot the Google modified. I've added it, but yours is so much better. WOW!

I'll post another Challenge soon! S-

I was in Yosemite for a week, and even though we're a small group, things really move fast around here! S-

I've been to San Francisco a number of times and remember the fog banks covering most of the water and shorelines while the towers were high enough they shone through. I attempted to recreate that effect but admit that I fell short of what my memory pictured.

I'm encouraged the My Image - Your Look idea might catch on and will add another soon!

I'm curious too, is adding fog something fairly easy to do or is this pretty much a Photoshop process? If you could explain it might help others! S-

NIk Color Efex Pro has a preset called [Graduated Fog] which gives the rudiments for applying the fog, setting its opacity, and playing with the blending options. In addition, I had already created a second layer to apply the fog, then created a mask where I removed even more of the fog from the upper portion of the bridge so that the towers were not covered up at all

I've recently discovered the Google Nik Collection and am having fun working on it so I really appreciate this and that it's easier than I thought!

Thank you so much for all the help, and the wonderful rendition! It works well in San Francisco and as an image as a whole! S-
