Why fight it

After spending my whole photographic life (only a couple of years =p) trying to get noise free images i actually decided to take advantage of the k7's grainy high iso look.



Rather proud of the results =)

Very nice grain B&W. Too bad for the blown out window.

Nice, you know on my e-pl1 Grainy B&W is an art filter! I have always found Pentax digital grain translates very well to B&W, and your photo above is a great example of that.

Could you maybe make a HDR with the same station point and ISO?

The grain looks really nice on the top of the piano. Nice shot.

Or just turn off the lamp and try it again. The composition is nice, with the cello/guitar? in the background it works very well.

HDR to preserve the detail that would have gone underexposed if the light would not be on, but looking again over the way the light is positioned, you might be right

I dont know how the grain would turn out with the HDR as well. Anyway the point wasnt to get a technically perfect photo, sometimes i love HDR and sometimes it just looks out of place. Can you imagine a picture of the mona lisa all HDR'd and oversaturated?
