Super image, Noise is not a big deal at this size.

Two things have you got the NR setup ON, The " Low " options works well.

Or try " Nik " softwares " Define " program, Its one of the best 3rd party noise reduction softwares around.

Your right about the D700 though, Mine is fab at stupid high ISO figures.....Grin

I see no problem with this and I also think that this style of shot is perfectly suitable for a bit of 'noise'.

How did we ever cope in the days of film?
These days there seems to be a total avertion to anything other than 100% "smooth" shots where black is seen as 'blocked out' and white is 'burnt out'. Soon seeing a pixel when viewed under an electron microscope will be frowned on and black & white will be illegal.
(not having a go at you ..... just having a general rant)

PS - in case you hadn't worked it out - I love this

Thanks for the kind comments everyone!

Thanks Cameracat. I used the camera straight out of the box, bought as a back-up for the D700. If I could turn the clock back, I would have got another 700. NR now ON!

Having said that, you're right Kaybee, in the days of film I used a lot of Fuji Neopan 1600 and Kodak TMax 3200, specifically to get 'grain'!!! Now it's called 'noise', we don't want it anymore!

All feedback appreciated either way!

Love this image, great pose and lovely light. Noise not noticable here but I'm sure it couldn't spoil the shot anyway. Superb Smile
