Default Moon Venus

Noted the other night Venus very close to the moon. First shot gives perspective. Second, a lens and software zoom, then crop. Ethical question. I dodged Venus a bit, but only to what I really saw. TO get Venus bright, the moon would have been blown out. OK or cheating?

Different people will have different ideas on that. My opinion is that unless you are a photo journalist or trying to say that Venus is brighter than the moon, brightening it up is fine. I'm all for processing, including creative processing.

I agree nice captures, The mind's eye always see's better than any camera and we all are trying to achieve the ultimate goal to express what we see. So PP away.
