Golden Gate Bridge - San Francisco

It´s hard to guess what you see on the picture, isn´t it ? -> Probably the most famous bridge in the whole world.... It is 2737 metres long, 27 metres broad and about 227 metres high. But the main fact, that makes the bridge so special, is the location. The Golden gate Bridge, which was opened in 1937, is situated in the bay of San Francisco, right in front of the impressive skyline of the fourth biggest city in California (after Los Angeles, San Diego and San José), which has over 800000 inhabitants (over 7 million with suburbs). Something quite interesting and special about the bridge could be the fact, that it is red. Actually they planned to paint the bridge (as it is usual) grey. The red/orange color was just a preservative, but as people liked it so much, they decided to keep the International Orange, as the coloring is called.

I liked this place a lot, we went to many different point of views during the day, and there was one point of view I decided to come back to see the Blue Hour. An so I got this photo.

I´m glad for any advice, hint or proposition, that could help me to improve my photography.
