The visitors this afternoon were in a co-operative mood and the robin stayed long enough to try different settings. This is at iso 100 - From RAW - auto curves and lightened in levels - sharpened and sized for web This at iso 800 same treatment but Neatimage added. Both at +1 stop exposure. I am sure the over exposure does help with the noise as usually 800 asa would be out of the question. Old dogs do keep learning new tricks! Having exif data make life so much easier!
