Robin on Tap

By LukeParkinson  
Good Morning Everyone,

Thank you to everyone that C&C on my previous Blue Tit, Today a Robin.

Now, I don't know if anyone can help me. I'm having a huge amount of trouble with my noise. Even when I turn the ISO down to 100 I am still getting a rather lot of noise. I've tried various Noise Reduction programs such as, Noise Ninja and Neat Image, but this takes some on the detail in the birds feathers away. Not too sure what I can do If there is a setting on the camera, or a different Noise Reduction program that I could try?

Really would appreciate it if anyone can help!

Thank you

As always, Please View Large

To my eye there is no noise problem with this super image. In normal lighting conditions noise should not be a problem but it will appear in low lighting shots or with a high ISO. If you remain unhappy raise the issue with Canon.

I am not a PS guru Luke but I think I would totally agree with this at present. This is a fine shot to my eyes.

Thank you Karen.

The problem I have is when i do, do the noise reduction it does get rid of thr noise but it also leaves either streaky lines or blotches?

Stunning shot mate. I don't know about the noise problem, but I can't notice any noise in any of your other photos.

As everyone else has said i can see no problem with the noise the detail and sharpness is great you can try the despeckle option and the reduce noise or you could try ajusting your compensation to your ISO and see if the pictures start coming out noisy or less noisy hope it helps luke Grin

There is no noise at all in this image! You have a pure black background which would show off any noise that was present. Indeed, the only noise I can see on anything you've uploaded this month is on the siskin you uploaded on the first.

I suggest that you upload a few samples of images that you consider noisy, including 100% crops and giving full shooting details (especially ISO) and we'll see if we can get to the bottom of it.

some good advice above - love the robin on the black b/g - out of interest I seem to get bothered with noise and I do very little editing, also keep my ISO low as I can, someone suggested to me it might need cleaning but I dont see any fluffs

Great shot Luke!
