I used Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra for both shots, on June 7, 2023. Yeah, I waited 21 days before sharing, for the reasons stated in the above paragraphs. Both photos are composed as taken and presented unaltered; they’re as the smartphone produced them. Vitals: f/1.7, ISO 25, 1/200 sec, 23mm (film equivalent); 1:46 p.m. PDT. The second: f/2.4, ISO 50, 1/250 sec, 70mm (film equivalent); 1:46 p.m.
