  1. Beautiful city you have there, Jane. I love the first moon shot.

  2. Simply gorgeous and the colors in the first one are a show-stopper. First you give us that brilliant, vibrant gush of color and then you turn it off in the next one. Bet you’ll never guess which I prefer? πŸ˜‰

  3. Viewing the first shot, one is guaranteed “sweet dreams” ~ the moonlight shimmering off the clouds with the city below, priceless.

  4. Absolutely STUNNING shots Jane….so vibrant n happy!!!

  5. Wow, Jane, these are beautiful – what amazing colors. Something tells me you had fun with these…. πŸ˜‰

  6. Fabulous! Somehow we missed seeing it by night like that – though I do remember (and loved photographing) waiting for the first ferry across from Sausolito when it wasn’t really light…

  7. Absolutely gorgeous shots, Jane. You could’ve posted only one image, I would’ve been happy. πŸ™‚

  8. I usually like monochrome for the more pronounced details, but in night photography I would say the opposite because your color photographs are so clear and pure that it looks almost 3D or that we are “in” the landscape
    Have a nice day (here in Paris it’s rainy)

    • Hi Anon, I am fascinated by the colorfully lit windows and layers in the nightscapes of the city. I agree, color emphasizes those details while black and white shows the gradations of light. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts– wish I was photographing Paris at night! Thank you so much.

  9. Oh Jane these are beautiful!

  10. These photos are stunning.
    Happy Sunday.

  11. Goodnight indeed, such beautiful shots of the CIty, Jane!

  12. A city at night is like a new place – and you’ve captured some dreamlike SF magic here. Wonderful!

  13. Jane, fabulous night time images and the first one with the moon is just spectacular!

  14. Regarding the first photograph, did you also zoom in on the moon and clouds as a separate composition?

  15. Absolutely beautiful images, Jane – especially like Sweet Dreams and Evening Hues. A πŸ™‚

  16. Love your rendered colors at night over the city. The shape of the moon and the its light are fantastic!

  17. Lovely set of pictures, Jane. My favorite? The first and the last one!

  18. Your nights are clad in gentle electric colors, Jane. In love with the moon and its bright side kissing the dark one, as magical as a fairy tale (and of course the technical magic to represent such a scene with a difficult dynamic range)

  19. Beautiful sweet dreams, Jane, once the first image came up, I let out a big AW

  20. Wow, great shots, Jane. I love it when you can see the dark side of the moon. So cool.

  21. These are amazing! I’ll be back in SF Pct 10-16 and then again Oct 23-Nov 20. Need to catch up !

  22. Beautiful images Jane 😊

  23. Love love love Sweet Dreams! Good Night Moon…

  24. All beauties, Jane. I may have to start doing some night photography but I live in such a small town. πŸ™‚

  25. The setting moon is evocative. But the stacked planes of Evening Hues are what really got me.

  26. Wonderful! Terrific! I really like night photos, and these are very nice. Especially the one with the moon. Will try some on our upcoming trip.

  27. Fantastic shots, Jane. Love the quote too. Reminds me of the words of the song by Don McLean β€˜Starry, starry night, paint your palette blue and gold.”

  28. Incredibly beautiful photography, Jane! Love! ❀️😎

  29. Wow! Spectacularly beautiful 😊

Love to hear what you think...
