    Could the site he's uploading it to add the noise??
    I don't know much about this stuff, just a thought.

    You should figure out what's causing the noise, just to know.

    Personally I like the look, especially the dark blue sky at the top, it simulates the sort of look you would get from an hd or dvr cam at night...adds another layer of realism . If you cropped the left side out of your photo I think you'd have something pretty sweet...just the truck rolling up in the darkness.

    I like it. It has a very "I Know What You Did Last Summer" feel to it.

    Keep it up.

    Maybe it happened when I was cropping/fooling around with it in iPhoto.
    I will pay more attention to it in the future when adjusting in iPhoto.

    I went out this morning (cloudy sober day) and made a series of photos.
    I shot 10 subjects. Each subject I shot 2x, one time at 100ISO and one time at 1600ISO.

    After putting them on my iPhoto I saw only a very slight difference between the two ISO settings. The ones shot at 1600ISO were a little darker, much not much.

    My question is: should there be a "big" difference between the two settings?

    I used the P mode on my Canon Rebel XT EOS

    In general I find it hard to get a nice photo on a dark cloudy day, but I guess that's normal?! There's snow on the ground here, does that have an effect on this as well?

    It's been my experience that ISO is a factor less during daylight shooting (the factor goes up when you're using a zoom) than at night.

    My daytime shots seem to come out fine no matter what ISO I'm using (I shoot a lot more film than digital, if that matters), but in low light, the lower ISO's get really noisey.

    P.S. I've been shooting pictures for a lot of years, but I have absolutely no formal training, so if I get teminology or technical stuff wrong - please correct me. I generally try not to get into technical discussions, due to my limited knowledge. I know how to make my camera (an old AE-1, by the way) do what I want it to - most of the time - and that's all I need.

    Kalmkidd, Sorry, it was not my intention to offend, but you said it could not be 100ISO, but I supplied the link to my camera setting.....anyhow, no harm done. I apologize if it came over in an offending way. Sorry.:blushing:

    I also have no formal training.
    I'm just fooling around with the camera and I am certainly no expert.
    Thanks for your comment.
