Shot this little guy feasting on blackberries. Shot at ISO 800. How's this look for noise on your monitor everyone? It looks clean to me, but I've posted other shots that I thought looked clean that others found a little noisy. The reason I ask, is because I shot this on purpose overexposing a little, and then decreasing the exposure in pp'ing hoping to get a cleaner shot using higher ISO. It was shot in RAW.......cheers.......Don.

Hi kman,

Looks good to me -- if that's considered noisy, I'll still take it any time. I shoot 800 all the time to bump us the shutter speeds so I can hand-hold my DS w/ FA*300/4.5 + P A 1.7xAFA (510mm f7.7) -- and I'm usually shooting jpeg, so noise can be more of a problem.

Very nice capture -- I've been trying to shoot more little birds after getting first getting hooked on herons a couple of years ago -- it's a challenge to get close. . .
Unfortunately, here in the Chicago suburbs, the migratory seasons don't last that long, and it's hard to get to know the birds' habits when they're just passing through.

I've got a good screen, and if that's noisy I'm Charles de Gaulle. Very good shot in all aspects.

Great shot! I am far too new to critique anyone's work but it looks sharp as anything to my newbie eyes.

Thanks guys. I was just unsure if my monitor was lacking or not. Seems ok to me too. ISO 800 definitely useful if you can get the exposure right......cheers......Don.
