    Looks like it'd make for a good pano shot. Take a few each way and use PhotoStitch or whatever.

    unfortunately on either side is a little hill so I can't take a pano. plus i was afraid of cops harassing us.

    san diego fires...the area he was shooting from was just west of where one of the 9 fires started and almost took out the buildings on the lower & right portion of the frame.

    The shot isn't very clear but I assume that is CSUSM on the right side of the frame...I got to know this area very well my last 3 years!

    go back at twilight and reshoot. Or just before sunrise, depending on the direction you were facing. have the sun to your back.

    It's not that apparent - but look anywhere there are highlights from light - most notably the left side. It's nothing too bad, but just enough to bother me. I'm super picky.

    yeah, i think what you're seeing is light pollution or the fog in the sky.

    the ISO was set at 100
