    My observation here is that the noise reduction/sharpen details work that has been done on this detracts from the final image. I know it's difficult when you need to crop, however if you know this when taking the shot then it's worth seeing what you can do to limit the noise you will get...knowing that it will be exaggerated when you crop in.

    I noticed that your shutter speed looked a bit high and it made me think that you may get away with a slower speed - say 250 or 125 maybe. And also the aperture may possibly have been a bit larger - say 5.6. All this would allow to reduce the iso to a maximum of 1000 (potentially lower) and therefore reduce the amount of noise to remove. Obviously I don't know what the light was like for you but I know you've talked in the forums about noise so thought this might be a useful observation.

    There's another shot that was uploaded recently that shows these sorts of settings and what can be achieved. I'm not saying the other shot is perfect, and it looks like they may have been much closer than you were to your subject but the exif info may be useful for you.

    Just a shame it wasn't slightly wider...could've had a nice v-shaped composition of both streets, which is what I was really after Sad

  • Hi Terry,

    Thanks for your kind words on my pf, it means a lot coming from someone with such a great set of work! You too have less clickes than your images deserve!

  • Great PF Penny, great example of the quality that exists on this website!

  • Hi Neil,

    Just got to say what a great PF you have, certainly gives a beginner like me something to aspire to... although let down by the fact you're a Man U fan Wink

  • Thanks for the kind comments and votes on my pf - you too have a very good pf - keep up the good work!

  • Would comment on individual pics Ian but they're all fantastic so would be here all night!! Love the variety, and the lighting you bring into the shots, some really superb perspectives as well!

    A joy to look at mate!

    Chris. (P.S. I'm quite jealous of your Iron Men shots!!)
