Worm anyone?

By moiral
Morning all. Was experimenting with high ISO in low light yesterday. But the wildlife wasn't as daft as me to go out in the damp. All I got was this wee robin. Had to lighten it a wee bit, but deliberately kept it a bit dark, as it is in the woods. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

A really top quality photograph sorry that I can't express myself ant further due to my range of movement.

Regards Nathan
The noise looks fine here, the 7D isn't always too good at high ISO I hear from friends. Somebody is about to get breakfast delivered.

Another good one Moira. Im not sure what software you use but I find that at ISO 800 I'm still ok with the 7D but I expose to the right (increase exposure) anything from one third to two stops to increase the available tones for adjustment in PS afterwards. You should not delete slightly pale, flat looking shots seen on the camera monitor at the time of taking. They may be your 'best' images to work on once you are back in your software program. This shot looks fine. A

Looks good on the forest floor,Moira, and unusual to see them taking worms.

Well not to bad for noise Moira at 2000 ISO the birds not bad just a little bit of noise showing in the background, it's a good test for the 7D.
