Why is the original so incredibly noisy if the picture is not manipulated? (original is available from the upperleft corner of the web pic)

Hi All,

Good question Firedog28.

The original is quite noisy but holds alot of detail.

The web site image appears less noisy due to being downsized for posting on the web.

I downloaded the original of thethird image above and viewed it at the same size it is displayed on his Zenfolio web site. Noise appears low in both.

I hope Guillermovilas doesn't mind but I took a crop of his original as downloaded and then duplicated the downloaded original and took the same crop and applied my own PP.I believe this shows 6400 is quite usable if you have no other options.

2 images follow:

Nice go.

I know that pp will improve dramaticaly the image , my point was just to show the result straight out of the camera and it`s pretty amazing considering , lots of details giving a lot of room for pp.

Which pp did you use ? :cool:

Used Photoshop Elements 6 with my Neat Image (noise reduction) Plug-in.

Then applied PSE6 filter 'Despeckle'.

Then Unsharpmask at 20,10,0.

Then, aside from this example, I would apply the Blur tool in areas around the noisy neck's shadow areas to soften the speckles appearance, which gives the following result:
