Taken this dusk. Light as gloomy as yesterday's. Noise was stillserious in the shots taken despite the fact that the noise reduction function was on. Probably, taking raw shots is a must for camera as old as the C8400 and in lighting condition as poor as this one. Shots attached have been denoised.

The lens and the metering system of the C8400 are great.

I really like the soft light and shadows you acheived in these shots Peter, it really sets a mood for that dock scene.I can see that first shot as a framed printinsomeones livingroom. Some of your bestwork yet !

Glad to hear that you like the first one. The dock scene tells of the environment where this night heron makes a living. Low light always works out magic for portraiture shots. The problem is with the noise. For these three, lots of denoising has been done. Fair and square on that cos a needle is never sharp at both ends.

Thanks for viewing and giving such a favourable comment.

Very nice Leung! Do you use spot metering? That could help in the case of excessive noise if you can expose for the shadows...cheers...Don
