Nice shot... I think grain/noise actually adds to this shot! In low light, i often like noise in the shot (certainly a lot more than the 'plasticy' look of overused noise reduction). Often when the light is too low for 'normal' iso ranges, the noise of the image mimics the poor visibility our own eyes suffer in these situations, adding to the mood of the photograph. Use noise/grain, don't fight it! Anyway, i digress... great shot.
Thank you for your feedback! +1 on that. When I saw Capa's (D-day) and Frank's photography (The Americans) I stopped worrying about grain/noise and motion blurr for good. Never will purchase a flash either, as my type of photography doesn't include the of one
My special kick are exactly these insanely high ISOs. Did so back in the film days, even dared to push my old 30D to ISO 3200 every now and then. Regards, Pedro
I remember the time when using ISO anywhere over 3200 on my 7D used to give me the heebies jeebies. It's amazing that the 5D3 can churn out such great images at insanely high ISO's.
I am all insanely high ISOs. That was the main reason to buy a 5D3. And I just wonder, what a 5DV will be capable to do! I dare to dream of 16 to 12.8 kish ISO 51200 once it gets announced. Hmmm...I'd be ok with very clean ISO 25.6k as well.
