Morning walk

By Craig75
I am not ready to join the mirrorless revolution yet, so I have just upgraded to a Nikon D850. This is one of the first photos I have taken with it. No doubt it's capabilities by far exceed my ability.

My 7 month old puppy Ruby taken handheld in Ashridge Forest this morning. C&C are more welcome.

Fisrt may I say what a great shot.
The main problem being the noise, and something like Topaz NR would take care of that. If you use PS open the image in Camera Raw (even a Jpeg file). Go "Detail" and use both NR sliders here. If you still have proplems open the "Basic" then reduce the texture slider.
The main problem is trying to reduce the noise in camera and from the data this shot is ISO 6400. I guess the ISO is set to Auto and in the setting the Max is this. As the ISo is part of the exposure triangle I would bring the Max right down.
I would also say that I'm not a lover of Auto ISO now and tend to set that around 800. Below 800 for most outdoor shots and above this for most other things with going too high.
Most new camera has easy access to ISO adjustment via one of the wheels on camera, so may be it's time to take back manual control of ISO ?

Remember even if you do use NR software you can bring back areas with a layer mask. In this case the dog and the foreground.
Hope this helps and is only ideas...
