    I climbed to the top of Stone Mountain near Atlanta to take some evening and super moon photos. There was quite a crowd on top of the big rock, and several people who, like me, brought their tripods and cameras along. I took several sunset pictures with my Canon 60D, but it wasn't very interesting overall. It was hazy and the clouds were not low. I took a few with my iPhone as well. I actually like how they came out better. I had my 60D zoomed in to the city skyline, and after seeing my iPhone versions, I'd have done better with wide angle. At least I have the iPhone versions. :)

    I used both Camera+ and the built-in on HDR mode. I edited using Camera+, and the last one (my favorite) was further edited using 100Camerasin1.

    Wow, is something wrong with your iPhone? They look really bad in terms of color and gamut, not real at all.

    Interesting photos. Thanks. I guess you zoomed in? Mooon is a lot smaller in my uncropped iPhone 4 photo.

    Ever heard of HDR?

    These are sunsets, not moon. The sun left a larger bright spot. And yes, the color is not accurate because I messed with them to make them look more artistic. The "not real" was intentional. The sunset by itself was not that exciting. The last one had a texture and color effect applied that gave it the blues on the bottom and made the haze look more like steam. It also brought out the far off skyline lines more.
