    Do you know what setting you had on the camera when you took it? ISO?

    The image is kinda noisy. Was this taken with a P&S camera?

    Yes SAM, I still only have the p&s,Two times I've accumulated the funds to buy the D90, two times from no wear get hit for the money,BUT I will continue on ,soap box over...

    Camera=Kodak Z740
    Exposure=F/3.7
    Focal length=63mm
    ISO speed=140
    I have been shooting some in manual, is the noise related to the pos camera?
    or should I go w/lower ISO??

    Your best bet is to reduce the noise with the right settings in camera and then if u a little in there use some PP. thats just me

    You could try using a noise reduction program like Noiseware Community Edition.

    FYI: Noise reduction software will soften your image. When you sharpen your image do it in very tiny increments as sharpening will make the noise come back and it'll look worse.

    its a good shot but i don't know maybe i'm the only one but when u look at the full size view it sorta looks a bit blurry to me. my eyes could be messing up from looking at the monitor 24/7.

    My problem is I don't recognize the noise."can't fix what you don't see"
    is noise more obvious if i zoom in on one part of the picture?
    if my ISO was @ 400 or more i might expect some but I was @140.
    Is it the quality of the light sensor,meanwhile I will search the web about noise
