ISO 800 in good light seems great. I have been trying to shoot lower, but sacrificed speed and wasn't doing so well, so noise reduction software is getting a work out. thanks for your comments.

It has been very nice light at this location each morning. Mid summer will be too early to get up, I think, or the ducks will be still in bed. Thanks, appreciated.

Trev, a great shot, very impressive, really shows how far the K5 has come over the K10. Took a couple at ISO 800 the other day and had to run through Noise Ninja twice which worked remarkably well.
