    A couple of different views of Charleston Harbor. Why the daytime image settings I don't know - at this point the camera must have been on HDR or something similar. Whatever the case, it worked out and without the usual excess purple fringing in the clouds that I've experienced with other similar cameras. The sunset was a spontaneous grab on the street, and the shadow noise versus detail isn't good, but depending on how it's rendered it might look OK. My web site does not support all of the standard colors I get with the Macbook Pro Retina, so it's the best I have at this point.

    f16, 1/1000 handheld, ISO 400.

    f5.6, 1/200 handheld, ISO 1600.

    I haven't witnessed a sunset like that in a long time, maybe ever. It must have been surreal to have been there. Thanks.

    It was pretty unusual. As we were leaving the house we were noting the dominance of yellow in the sky, 5 minutes after sunset. Then by the time we got to the store where we had a better view (5 minutes later), the red color was taking over rapidly.
