Finally, some challenging light. What are you using to reduce noise in PP, Herb? While the BG in #2 looks clean, the subject noise is still pretty apparent. Balancing subject NR and detail is very challenging, and I certainly have yet to come close to mastering that process.

Hey Jim, I use Neat Image for NR. I have camera noise profiles saved for every Iso captured on my 1d IV sensor, but the IQ really falls above 2000 iso. I tried more NR on the BGD as the details were too smoothed over when applying to the heron. I probably should have just tossed those shots. Thanks for the input, I appreciate it.

Wow.. I love these, Herb. Lighting in 1 and 4 are beautiful. They are my favorite shots and next one is the banking.

1 and 4 are beautiful portraits Herb, and 6 is just a really cool flight pose... well done.

I have recently moved back to using Auto ISO for all light conditions other than direct sunlight. The reason is that the camera exposes the image correctly and eliminates a lot of under-exposure noise I was getting when trying to set ISO manually. Result has been more detail and much less noise on my subject.

Some real nice images here Herb.. The 800 ISO shots look great... I find for me, 1600 is about the upper limit for my 1dmk4.

Another great set Herb. The light in 1 and 4 make them stand out, and the banking shot is another pick ~ Ron
