    On Tuesday night we took my Mom out to dinner for her 80th birthday. Great restaraunt right at the marina has huge 20 foot tall windows facing the marina. First clouds we've had in a couple of weeks and I didn't have the camera because the family considers it rude for me to bail out in the middle of the meal to go shoot the sunset.

    So I had to settle for a iPhone shot through the window.

    So, I went back tonite with the camera gear and… the clouds were heavier than last night and things were getting hazy form all the forest fires. Not as bad as WoodWorks has it, but still noticeable. Little bit different point of view (I figured it would be weird to stand outside the windw I was at last night, even for me. ;) ), but you can see the diffference in the clouds.

    I'll add more pics to this thread tomorrow, but for now I've been up about 20 hours and i've starting to get a little bit foggy. ;)

    Yup, quite a difference.

    The first one is nice, but you can see how much better it is with a real camera.

    Yeah, I love shooting with my iPhone, but that second shot is gorgeous.

    Nice shot. Hard to do that with an optical viewfinder and not go blind. ;)

    Ah, I found the last shot I took, this one with the Rok8/2.8 fisheye. I misplaced the card and just found it.

    Thanks. Hardly looks like a fisheye shot does it?

    If you hadn't told me, I wouldn't have guessed. De-fished?

    Nope, no perspective corrections at all, just levels/saturation etc.
