Nice composition, but a lot of pixelation/grain for my taste.

Hi Wingman, this is a small crop from the original high ISO image. It was poorly illuminated by a light over the sink the container sat in. Best my old A200 could do.

.... and here I was thinking that the pixellation & graininess was part of its magic ...

Hi Phil, that's why there's chocolate and vanilla. Thanks for your always welcome critiques. I don't know why noise is such a problem for Wingman since he spends so much time around airports.

Oh Streets me ol' mate ...

Your finale made me chuckle - well done

More seriously tho, and not having a go at Wingman or anyone else-
Having come up with 40+ years of film use with grain as a feature of every film / image I shot, I find it hard to understand media & other comments regarding 'noise' which I will here equate with 'grain'. Even back in film days, there were the incessant arguments between 35mm film users & 6 x 4,5 or 6 x 6 users as to the visibility of grain vs image size

Just as grain was an inherent part of every film-image, so is noise part of our digital world today. I have pixel peeped a number of full-frame digial images and it's there ... it might not be as visible as the noise from a compact slip-in-the-pocket micro-sized sensor, but it's there.

From this, I often wish those in the media who carry on like a 2-bob-watch about 'noise' would start to use their cameras for photography, rather than just look at their camera gathering dust on a shelf, while they sit in their 'expert' armchair

Phil

Ha Ha....LOL..good one Streets! I wouldn't be so critical of noise if there was the aroma of jet fumes and burnt rubber to go along

On a serious note, I have no issues with noise if it was used intentionally to achieve a certain effect. Sounds like in this case, Streets acknowledged that it was a small crop of a high ISO image and it was the best that the camera could do.

When I was shooting film, I shot a lot of tri-x pan, and pushed it to 800 asa, just to be able to shoot in dim light. Grain was an inconvenient side-effect that we lived with. Times have changed, I guess. Digital imaging allows us to de-noise a picture, something film would not. If getting a usable image is 1st priority, then noise may be unavoidable. Personally, I can live with a little noise, unless it very obviously detracts from the story the picture is trying to tell.
