Perfect shot VP. Lovely colour and detail. It's also nice to see posts where the photographer isn't afraid of leaving a little grain. Beautiful.........cheers.....Don

Hi Don.... thanks a bunch for the comment and also about the grain.

For my own personal taste, when it is similiar to this photo I prefer it to my efforts of noise removal. Naturally, I have my share that have a need for NR:-) but have gotten to the point of trying touse it no more than necessary.

Nice shot, I'm trying to figure out why you'd have "noise" in this shot... not a moving target so I'd think low ISO was in order and not low light, as far as I can tell... I'm guessing it has more to do with sharpening that caused the graininess. If I take any semi low light images and slide that sharpening bar over you can see that noise begin to appear... It's only a theory of why your shot came out noisy. Nontheless, a nice picture. :-)

Thanks for the comments Mike and Bob.

This was one of those days where light was coming and going so fast that I hadupped ISO and shootingwide open. Just happened thatfull sun popped outfor a few seconds when I shot this. But yes, a combination of settings and a small amount of sharpening created a minor amount of noise/graininess.

I am a newcomer to this forum. It is just beautiful beyond description. The noise is a minor issue.
