Any improvement?

Post by DaveW »

Any improvement? I took it from further away as suggested and also upped my ISO to ISO 400 from my normal ISO 100. It's a bit noisier I think (grainier) but is it passable?

Much more detail in this photo Dave. You can count the hairs on his...posterior end :D Looks like another little critter in the lower right.

I would say that this is a pretty darn good photo there Dave. :D I prefer ISO 100 myself but do on various occasion shoot at 400. Sometimes a noise reduction program works quite well to remove the grain at 400 but not all of the time. I am cheap, so when I use a NR program, I use the free Demo Version of Neat Image
