After seeing Frank's excellent soccer pics at hight ISO, I decided to see what I can do. My Kodak dx6490 is horribly noisy at 400, so I ran this through a modest filter with Neat Image. It's a compromise between keeping the details and cleaning up the noise. I also tried a trick to boost contrast using high-pass filtering and Hard light blending in Elements.

Comments are welcome.

While I was concentrating on the heron, I missed small flight of ducks that burst out of some cover. This is a last straggler.

Goodjob Tom, I love the pose of that Heron, it looks like some evil caped winged-beast with naughtiness on it's mind. I also think the duck shot was quite successful in that it stands out so much over the background. You seem to have tackled and wrestled with the ISO beast quite successfully.

While sorting through some shots yesterday, I found this shot of a heron down at the same marina. I think it's the best of the bunch.

Comments?
