Dawn crescent moon

After snapping several shots of the moon and what looks like a planet (Venus perhaps?), I repositioned the EOS T3i and added the roof into the frame to add some interest. I placed the tripod so that the "arrow" would point up to the moon. Had to stop down the aperture to get the roof in focus. I know. I know. I should've done all that hyperfocal distance calculation thingamajig but I was pressed for time and didn't have my chart with me.

0.8", f/16, ISO 100, EF-S 18-55mm @55mm

I switched to the EF 75-300mm to get a close-up. Skies were not at all crystal clear.

1/8", f/13, ISO 100, 300mm

Still using the same lens but a 100% crop. Yes, the image quality sucks. Am blaming the clouds. Keep in mind too that this was taken close to sunrise so the sky was actually lit up. I adjusted contrast in post to darken it. The original had a really washed-out look.

1/13", f/13, ISO 100, 300mm
