Maui, Hawaii editorial photographer Susan Seubert on the 5D Mark 2 in low light

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.
