Okay, hopefully, this month I will submit a much better entry. I am doing mostly 3D again. Using Blender 2.42 RC 3's node composite features I hope to make a fairly descent movie. I plan on using mostly 3D; then, I will be able to show different vantage point without have to make a panoramic image of the different background elements. Here is some meshes of on of the towers. The bridge in total is about 35% complete, not counting coloring...
Hope you all like it.

Here is some more WIP images. At this point; I have, one main tower, the road and structural supports under the road. I still have not added the arch at the end of the road or any of the cables, main or the ones that go down to the roadway. -Also the bridge is only half right now. I have only made upto where the main cable is at it's lowest.
Silver: Thanks for the compliment, but it isn't that difficult if you find good reference images. On GOOGLE search for things like "golden gate bridge ": base, cables, detail, structure and towers. That should help you see the different aspects of the bridge close up.
echarelle: Thank you, but haven't you seen "Elephants Dream?" That was made in Blender. Blender actually is quite powerful and the new features may make it a big rival to the commercial programs. -I hope to show off some of the new features in this months contest...
P.S. Just in case anyone is wondering. In the images below, the polygon count is about 620,000. -Also, the image with a grey background is a preview render. The blue is a full render...

I took it one step further! Found a few QTVR's on the net to see the whole environment (not sure i'll be able to add that amout of detail tho). Awesome stuff! But i still havent found a good ref photo of whats to the right of the bridge
Anywho: Keep up the good work!
