    you did such a great job reducing noise in my last shot, i thought you might like to do it again! you dont have to if you dont want to; im sure someone else will take up the job if you dont.

    ....well it wasnt overcast today, i just didnt get to shoot untill late afternoon.

    that program works good but it makes the edges of the bird really soft

    They were soft to begin with as the focus is off. There are settings that can be played but if you look at the stick to the right of the bird that is where your focus is.

    All noise reduction software does that. That's why it's important to get the exposure right since a well exposed image will have less noise in it.

    Is this image the full sized picture or did you crop it?

    And is this shot data correct?

    ISO - 1600
    Aperture - f/5.6
    Shutter Speed - 1/640
    Focal Length - 300mm

    Why did you shoot this at ISO 1600? You probably could have shot this a ISO 400 and it would have come out okay. Even ISO 800 would have given you less noise and better image to work with.
    Ohhh...didn't notice the focus was off. Yeah, it's important to get the subject in focus too.

    yes this is croped. alot.

    and (haha!) yes i did shoot at 1600.
    it was getting late, about to turn dark. i was going inside, and this little bird captured my attention. i was shooting free handed, so i didnt want to risk motion blur from camera shake, so i shot at 1600. i got a shot off at 800, but there is a little bit of camera shake.
    the reason it looks like it is sunny light is because i was shooting in raw and this looked like the best setting for it (daylight)

    Maybe you just need to buy a faster telephoto.

    My suggestion in that case would be learn to embrace the noise. You're looking at more than doubling your investment.
