Nice shot. Just curious on what settings you used.. I'm assuming fairly high iso setting? Looks like some noise by the clouds etc.

Thanks for the comments everyone. As for the ISO setting I think the camera was set to ISO 200 but will have to double check that when I get home. Can't bring up the photo data here on the work computer.

ISO400 f16

Very strange setting.

The pic looks like heavily denoised with some noise reduction program and then oversharpened.

Actully, the sight is the only thing that is good here, and composition is fine, but the camera settings + postprocessing are horrible. The pic is full of artifacts. Anyway, 40D at ISO400 is still with no or very little noise, so I put most of the blame to the postprocessing.

Anyway, I do not understand not lowering ISO when the ciscumstances allow it.

Well can't change the F-Stop or ISO on a picture already taken but can give it another go at post processing. The ISO may have been set to auto which would explain the 400 ISO setting. As for using an F-Stop of F-16, that is something I use to do backin film days, use the highest number possible for landscapes. Is there a better setting combination to use with a digital camera like the 40D?

Thanks for the comments,

Craig


P.S.

That shot was from the first trip outside with a DSLR, hey I may even get better in time.

This is the same picture with the PSPX controls set to zero, well almost anyway. Did add +3 (very little) to the color as the original looked washed out.



How do I like the 40D so far, well not being a Canon fan for the last (use to use all Canon) 18 years I have to say it's winning me over quite well and fast. The only big problem I'm having with the camera is the person (me) behind the view finder. It's going to take a while to figure out when to use which settings for the different type of shots ie, portrait, landscape, nightshots and so on.
