Lucky 13 – San Francisco Cable Car

Lucky 13 - San Francisco Cable Car by Scott Loftesness

I headed up to San Francisco this morning to attend a Scott Kelby photography session at the Adobe Photoshop & You building on Sutter Street. Scott’s session was great – all about shooting with continuous light as opposed to strobes – I really learned a lot.

Along the way, I happened across this cable car heading up Powell St. Lucky 13 I called it. The shot was taken with my tiny Canon PowerShot S95 – in RAW – and then post-processed into a single shot HDR using Photomatix Pro. I then imported it to Lightroom, made a few more minor tweaks (mostly desaturating it a bit) and the posting it to Flickr.

In terms of composition – and this was totally random – I love that the guy in front is a photographer – and he’s hungry for the upcoming shot up the Powell Street hill!
