Have you created this pictures or only shot with your camera? When the second is true, where have you shot these pictures?

Your work is very distinctive, and good.
I think you meant the link to be this: [link]

And, personally, on my rather old 1024x768 screen, I prefer the slightly more saturated version that the dA jpg gives. But I know a some people have had hassles with the jpg algo that dA uses.
Are the highlights along the front of the slope purely sunlight, or something else?

This is true, but could compose to mostly eliminate it or crop here or compose with it and people will like seeing some place they've driven ;)

Oh... wow... I've never seen this place sot from this angle! It looks gorgeous!
The last time I've been to Golden Gate (we stayed at the nearby hotel there) was probably 11 years ago, heh.

Really a most stunning photo you got here :D
