Default Cardinal - Bit of Noise, But Still . . .

A most gloomy day today, and windy as all get out, so I am not sure if I have any killer shots. But I shot these through an open window at ISO 1600 and 3200 just to see how it would turn out, and thought I would share. FZ150, shot RAW, auto-tone applied in Lightroom 4, but no noise reduction, and no cropping. Turned out rather well I think. First one 1600, second 3200.

And yes, I know they can be cleaned up and all that, but wanted to show what can be done because some folk don't have noise reduction.

For 1600 and 3200, I think these are very, very good! I get so much noise at ISO 400!

I think such noise for Iso 1600 and 3200 is very acceptable.
