    hmm, it was a rather dim and soft morning was it?

    high ISO?

    or did you pull up exposure in post processing?

    in any case, the noise is not too bad on these shots, a bit like film grain which is not always a bad contribution to an image. the mood on some of these images is really nice.

    also,
    neatimage might be able to reduce the noise here if you really want to get rid of it ...

    You were on ISO1600.
    Shoot with a lower ISO# when there is ample light.

    I love how you've composed that third shot! :thumbup:

    you'll need to give some clues as to your camera settings...

    i can think of a few things that might have caused that -
    but all might well be completely irrelavent:

    high iso?
    long exposure? - but i doubt it pointing in to the sun
    poorly scanned in negatives?
    lense/camera combo unable to cope with sun within frame?

    (really shouldn't get distracted whilst posting and allow myself to be pipped by three others!)

    I figured it was the ISO. I have that problem a lot if I shoot any higher than an 800 ISO.

    even if it was long exposure ... you might get the occasional hot pixel, but not noise like that ...

    oh, someone read the actual image data ... should have done that myself ;)

    yes, agree here .. it is the ISO.

    I never let ISO be chosen by the camera ...

    Well, the third photo here was taken at 1/3200 sec. at 1600 ISO.
    Chris, you were so worried I might ask you to take a photo of your room, you forgot to lower the ISO... Happens to all of us! Sure does.
    They are very, very atmospheric, all the same, and I like them all.

    Yes I think that all clues point to the ISO then,Lafoto I like them all aswell but when I printed them out they dont have the same effect.
