Thanks Paul, I value the comment. This group of flowers was tucked away at the back of a garden in a Manor House just down the road from me. Made a bit of a schoolboy error and left a high ISO set on the camera.
I normally shoot at around 100 with assisted flash. Not a clue how they were turning out but went with the histogram for basic exposure.
Topaz is well worth having. A good tip

Been watching the Red Kites and Buzzards war over territory the last few days.
Plagued with cloudy days and farm-plough dust so not great light but caught this particular skirmish rather nicely.

The Kites are nesting and defending their area ferociously against repeated attacks by up to 8 Buzzards at a time!
A second pair of Kites got called in today as reinforcements, 4 Kites and 8 Buzzards all circling at once right over my head, and too much zoom on my (prime) lens to pan out and capture it!

That Topaz seems to be working fine for you.
The Hellebores in our garden don't look anywhere near as good as that!

Good work

Something I'm learning more and more is that if you get the exposure right, high ISO noise is not much of an issue. It seems that the biggest problem is the sensor heating up to try to record information that isn't bright enough. It is better to go to a much higher ISO and over-expose a little. The resulting ISO noise in brighter areas can be dealt with much easier than desperately underexposed dark areas.

This was taken this morning hand-held at 600mm (400 + 1.5TC) and ISO 3200! Pretty much worse case scenario for my gear and yet it looks fine to me after a bit of Topaz & PSE.



Interesting and useful to some maybe? I'm certainly not afraid of 4 figure ISO's any more.
