Fort Point and OnOne Software
This is one of the many photographs I've taken at Fort Point, and the Fort Point Light underneath the Gate Bridge. It's an old Civil War army fort that guarded the entrance to San Francisco Bay. Beginning in 1852, the US government funded the construction of a chain of 59 lighthouses along the California Coast. The Fort Point light was one of 13 serving the San Francisco Bay. In 1934, The US Lighthouse Service keepers extinguished the Fort Point light for the last time due to the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge. For awhile it looked like they may tear down the fort and the light to build the bridge but in the end they just built the bridge right over the top of the fort. This is a must see stop when in San Francisco.
I removed the sky with OnOne tools and then added in the dramatic sky and then color corrected all so that it would look like it belonged. The tool work really well, even over the top rail and the circular staircase grill pattern. See more at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/97777205@N03/albums
