Hi Donna, it doesn't look noisy to me at all. Oh, now I see what you're saying. I do see some but it's not bad at all. It's really a beautiful shot.

That is a great shot of a normally fast moving bird taking a break.

I upload my pictures to Smugmug and then use their "Get a link" tool You can choose several different sizes to use for posting on sites like Steve's. I usually choose large which produces a picture that is 600 x 480 pixels and around 85kb in size.

Here is an example. Camera was a Nikon D300 with a Nikon 200-400mm VR lens + a 1.4 TC ISO 400. This was taken at 550mm (835mm 35mm).

Hi Donna.

I re-size my photos to 1024 on the long size and be sure the file size is less than 230kb's. We called this noise "grain" back in the film days. Looks good to me. I've used the upload feature here for many years now and have zero complaints.
