It’s hard for me to see differences as I am in San Francisco with out my monitor. Can you explain what you did differently?
We also have, at times, (like last night), Unusually low lying clouds in the evenings, behind which the sun can set privately!San Francisco... Wow I love that place!! Less contrast and saturation,
James,......theses lenses that I am using are bright across the whole frame very little light fall off, especially at small apertures.
I rebuilt and entire kitchen wall just to get light you have here.
Waiting, waiting and watching, moving the composition in and out, is what I do.
I learned this from studying Edward Weston.
Sometimes he spent weeks with one delicately balanced shell for the right cloud to move in front of the sun.
As you can see it’s very rewarding.
