I have been increasingly using ISO400 and I am
pleasantly surprised that the results are better
than what I might have expected after reading so
many comments regarding its use.
White balance setup helps a lot,and a noise removal
session in post processing has helped me get a few
hand held keepers that I would have missed otherwise
in low light situations.

very happy

Impressive.. How are you setting the WB (anything special)? and how are you reducing the noise?? I wouldn't mind seeing the original for comparison..

Thats simply a lovely pic and the composition is just spot on. Couldn't make out any noise at all and there doesn't seem to be any softening of the pic.

Regards the whitebalance are you manually setting it ?

Nothing special, in camera (cloudy weather) setting.
Original attached resized to 720x540, exif should be intact,
Helicon Filter 2.03 free
Well worth a look, I have tried a few noise removal programmes and this recent release seems OK,
Cheers

Looks good. Nice job. I've been using ISO400 and working with Neat Image as a plug-in. It's not free, but in PS I can work with noise in layers and retain a lot of detail.

Verrrrrry nice picture. The duck is definitely taking a back seat to the ripples and color variations of the water. ....A real winner

Excellent. I've also seen some recent posts where there was light but the photo was taken at a high shutter speed using 400 and it looked decent. Perhaps 400 in conjunction with slow shutter = unacceptable noise, but when used with a faster ss the noise is in an acceptable range?

Regardless, this is one of my favorite pics posted here. Excellent.
