This was actually taken at about five o-clock on Ka'anapali Beach on Maui, Hawaii and yes, I was enjoying a cocktail with the show! LOL
I've been going through some of my old film shots and they just don't edit as well as the digital ones do in the photo editing programs. I was able to work on a few lighting issues with this photo with the NX2 software and then tweaked it a little more in photoshop but I sure wish it had been a true digital file. This one has some grain/noise to it that came in because the photo was too dark to begin with and when I tried lightening up the dark spots I got the noise.
After Q convinced me I should be shooting in RAW I don't know why you would shoot in any other format. I take that back, in 14 bit RAW I only get about three frames a second but if I switch to 12 bit RAW or even jpeg, I can get 8 frames per second using the added battery grip and EL4 battery. So if I need to take a series of fast shots then I would switch but even then I would probably go to the 12 bit RAW instead of the jpeg. I do have to have a few extra memory cards shooting in RAW but all in all, it's definitely worth it!
An added note on shooting in 14 bit RAW, the best way it was explained to me is that it's like a flight of stairs, a flight of 12 bit stairs aren't any shorter than a flight of 14 bit stairs, it's just that there are more, smaller steps on the 14 bit stairs. Shooting in 14 bit RAW also uses 1.3 times as much memory as 12 bit RAW.
