Crossing Dark Waters

I flew to San Francisco a few weeks ago to participate in Google's Glass Foundry event. I made this photo next to their San Francisco office. Don't they have a nice view of the bay?

Crossing Dark Waters

While I was playing with this photo in Perfect Effects 4, I stumbled across a filter combination which dropped almost the entire Bay Bridge except for it's lights. With a lot of Dodge & Burn action, I tried to enhance the effect, hopefully pulling the viewer past the street, and down the bridge.

For some reason, the result reminded me a lot of Scott Sigler's Nocturnal*; its version of San Francisco is full of shadows and hidden passages. If you like twisted stories about secret societies, hideous mutants, and serial killers, you might check it out. Skip it if you're squeamish.
