Last night we were having dinner in Maui on Ka’anapali beach on the lanai as the waxing crescent moon was setting in the twilight… it was astonishingly beautiful so I grabbed my 5D Mark II and the 70-200 f2.8 IS USM lens and took a few snapshots of the moon and Venus. I could not believe how pretty the image turned out. If I had tried to shoot this on film, it wouldn’t have been possible, I don’t think. (and I still love film!) I processed the RAW file in Adobe’s Lightroom with just a little noise reduction and the image just sings. In fact, I could see more with the digital file than I could with my naked eye.
