b&w view of San Francisco. Taken in San Francisco in the early 1980s from Twins Peaks looking northward while on a guided tour of the city. Tried to find the name of the hill but I could not find a map that showed this particular perspective of the city of San Francisco.

Unusual to see this view in black and white Jan but what a view. Lovely cloud caused shadows and intense detail. Some noise evident in the larger version and a couple of black spots one towards top left and the other near the bridge. Nice work,

It's so difficult to make an effective image of a cityscape. They tend to be something of a jumble. This doesn't suffer from that malady. As Dave says, fine use of the clouds and shadows. The very small black spots don't distract. Noise from scans is difficult to remove, I'm sure. B&W emphasizes the shapes. Well done.

Great view, really like the black and white treatment.
Would be interesting to go back and take a second shot and compare how its may have changed since the 80's.
best wishes
