We had a gorgeous, spectacular, god-cloud kind of evening last week, so I went out to take all these stunning photos that make amateur photographers look good, when all you really have to do is put the camera on auto, randomly point the lens anywhere in the sky and push the button. Presto! Instant artistic genius.

Then I downloaded the photos and discovered that I had the auto-setting on one of the lower quality settings = grainy photos.
