Shooting Wide Open = Priceless
Walking out of work last night I saw a co-worker's Harley in the dark looking exceptionally enticing (we do get to ride in December in AZ, lol). I had my 50mm f1.2 mounted on my 5D Mark II hanging on my shoulder, so I decided to test the limits of fast lenses and high-ISO capability. This was shot hand-held and no flash (I don't even own one). Amazing... this camera sees in the dark, we could never do this with film in the old days. I did typical Curves and Sharpening plus the Dark/Light filter in Nik Color Efex 3.
50mm, 1/25 sec, f/1.2, ISO 2500. Noise reduction done in Camera Raw which is finally an excellent tool in Photoshop CS5.
