Thanks Serendipidy, I only use DPP and checking I see a little sharpening and I've bumped the NR from default 6 to 8 out of 20 - really not much.  As stated I find the shot disappointing becasue of what it might have been rather than knocking ISO 10K.  I guess it comes down to basically, is the composition worthy enough to accept the grain and lack of sharpness??

Here's one in the sequence where it is totally untouched and I see the ISO was up to 12.8K, and it shows!

Jack, I believe that sharing trumps sharpness, grain, ISO etc. :)

Thanks for sharing.

Several days ago, my neighbor across the canal built a wooden perch over the water for Harry. He likes it and is very good from that vantage point. Some from this afternoon. 5D3, 100-400L @400mm.

Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

It seems that everybody likes Harry the Heron.  :)  Very nice shots Serendipidy.
