    I'd like to see how Fujis handle the subtleties of tone.

    TIA.

    Cheers, Jock

    I think this is my best cloud photo. It was shot through the windshield while my wife was driving. I was using an X-Pro1. I think I want to re-get that camera.

    I've accidentally deleted the best sunset shots I've ever taken, which I'm very bummed about, since the sunset was mindblowing beyond belief, as if I'd taken a box full of LSD-infused sugar cubes, and the X100 captured it perfectly.

    Still, here're some other Fuji X100 sky/sunset shots...

    Ray,

    The Fuji Sunset and San Francisco shots really show off "subtlety of tone." Nice.

    Cheers, Jock

    I went to let the dogs out the other night after their dinner and saw a sunset that I thought @Jock Elliott@Jock Elliott would enjoy.

    My first attempt was to underexpose and it was dark and beautiful and saturated, but then I thought I should try to capture it "as is".....not enhance it. I matched the rear screen to the sky and this is exactly what it looked like.
