Night Photography in San Francisco

My brothers Stephen and Curtiss have long expressed an interest in driving up from Los Angeles to play some golf, go to a Giant's game, and do some night photography. Yesterday, we were able to accomplish all of that. We played 18 holes in the morning, drove to San Francisco for the Nationals-Giants game, and later drove a short distance to the Embarcadero to finish off the evening. All of the photographs were taken with the Sony NEX 7 and 10-16 super wide zoom; ISO 100, 30 second exposures, and an F-stop of 16-22. I forgot to shoot in RAW this time, but processing the jpeg files wasn't too difficult. The Embarcadero offers a wide variety of shooting possibilities and I wanted to take advantage of some angles I hadn't explored before, this being my third or fourth visit. The third photograph involved the heaviest processing as the out-of-camera jpeg was quite dark and somewhat distorted. Photoshop and Nik filter suite to the rescue! Thanks to Karen Sweeney of the Giants for the tickets and parking pass. You made our evening together memorable and it went off without a hitch.
