    I took a shot of California Street in San Francisco in March this year in an attempt to get something similar to Todd Walker's famous shot from 1964. I realise his is from the bottom of the hill looking up but it's too busy there now with traffic.
    I'd be very grateful for all opinions on this shot. It was taken with a Canon Digital Rebel and prints are available!!!!

    The composition is nice and there is no keystone effect. My only critique is the street scene is a little too dark.

    thanks railman
    it looks brighter with a white surround and printed it looks great but i agree that it does look a bit dark on the pc.

    This shot is so rad! I love it. I like it going down the street because of the bridge in the background. And it's not something that struck me right away, so it was cool to notice it.
