Sunset captured on my Samsung Galaxy S8+

I’m not much of a mobile phone shooter, but tonight’s sunset was stunning due to a few clouds. Rather than run for my DSLR, I thought I’d try out a challenging photo for a mobile phone camera. This scene would be challenging to a mobile camera due to the large differences in very bright and dark areas. This dynamic range is something that a small lens and sensor in a mobile struggles with. As you can see, the result is pretty good considering.

This photo was shot on my Samsung Galaxy S8+. The camera was in “Pro” mode and saved as a RAW (DNG) file. I set the exposure on the bright sunset and also dialled in -1 compensation, I then finished up with some post work in Lightroom.
