Yet another from the cold morning in Bushy Park. This is a JPEG conversion from the RAW file. It started life as a rather uninspiring, under exposed effort but a great deal of tweaking with PS7 yielded a result I am happy enough to upload. Honestly, I don't think it's that great but it's all I have to upload just now as the rest are even worse! As always, comment and suggestions very welcome. I'm especially keen to know if there is a technique to remove the coloured area on the stag - is that what people refer to as noise?

I have to click this one, of course!
Another super subtle approach.

You're right, it is noise. This has probably been caused by trying to recover the shadow detail after under exposing.
There are a couple of reasonable noise reduction programs around, Google Noise Ninja for example.
Hope that helps.

BurntOut - thank you, that's very helpful. Honestly, I don't much like this image and I think I know why now. Get the exposure right next time!

If you use a RAW converter like Capture One, you can get away with pushing the exposure by a stop or a stop-and-a-half in either direction. Much more than that and noise starts getting bad. As you say, much better to get it right in camera where possible.
