I took this shot this morning.
I am Happy with it considering it was cloudy
and also a dark area of a pond.
E -520 Oly 70-300 ISO 800 f 4.5 shutter 320 150 mm Hand held
A little Too much noise for my liking so I used Noiseware community Edition
Thanks for looking

Bright and overcast is not necessarily a bad thing, Fred. I'm sure it cut the surface glare tremendously in this capture. Looks like Noiseware did a nice job for you as you didn't lose a lot of detail. Good one!

Nice job. You captured both the duck and his reflection just right. Well done.

Nice capture Fred, good you didn't loose too much details with removing the noise.

Good one, Fred. That reflection wasn't easy to get, considering that the duck probably didn't remain very motionless. And as Gary said, Noiseware did well. I'm guessing that ISO800 is about the limit for the E520 before noise gets very noticeable.

Thank you Ted.
ISO 800 is the limit of my E-520. After ISO 800 the next is ISO 1600 which is very noticeable.
