Found this leaf frog in pretty dark conditions. It was a gray day, and I was hiking through the trails in the underbrush part of our local sanctuary. Shot at iso 1600, 300mm, f/4.5 @ 1/250. I was lucky to get this shot. Left the tripod at home, so is handheld. I ran NR on it, but thought I'd post the original. Just resized etc....cheers.....Don

Ok guys. Here's the filtered version. I used Noiseware Community free edition. I didn't give it a real strong NR, just a little to clear up the background....Don.

Nice shot Don! Sharp eye tocatch that one. The 1600 ISO worked well, I used it yesterday in late evening to catch my visiting Heron.

Thanks VP. Yes, ISO 1600 is quite useable I'm now finding. Just shoot a little overexposed preferrably in RAW, and back off the exposure doing in the RAW conversion. Shots come out surprisingly clean with decent detail. I used to underexpose so as to not lose highlights, but this other method seems to work just fine. Need to use the camera's histogram a lot to do this properly it seems......cheers.......Don.
