Took this the other morning about 20 minutes after sunrise. The light was golden. Shot at ISO 1600, so a little noisy.....cheers...Don

Very nice, I don't think its too noisy. I believe the western juncos look a little different than the ones here in the east. I will have to check my photos when I get home to see if I can tell a difference.



cheers

Before the various forms of Junco were combined into one species, this one was known as the Oregon Junco, and the predominant Eastern form the Slate-colored Junco. The one pictured is a female.

I don't find the noise objectionable, either. The slight graininess adds a feeling of softness that complements the fluffiness of the bird, and is quite pleasing.

Very nice!!! if you don't like the noise then just reduce it in the background only. But, I don't think it detracts from the picture. nice work!!

Thanks everyone. Yes, the noise isn't that unsightly. I don't mind a little grain..it's the chroma I don't like....cheers...Don
