Shot using the preset Olympus Sunset scenic mode, F4; 1/60 sec.; -0.7 EV; ISO 200; 28mm focal length.

Description

The site was at the old Sutro Baths ruins (a former indoor saltwater pool) and people were preparing to shoot the sunset. Place was crowded with photographers, tourists and wedding parties all jockeying for the best spot to shoot their composition. I stood on the edge of the old foundation and composed my shot of the water and hillside while people tried to squeeze by on the narrow edge to get closer to the breaking waves. I placed a portion of the concrete foundation at the bottom of my composition and took my exposures but in post processing the upper hillside portion was not too appealing so I cropped the image at the water's edge forcing the viewer to look down at the reflection to see the top of the hillside (the people in the image are all upside down).
