K10D and nighttime shooting

Despite all the bitchin' about the K10D high ISO performance, the SR is worth a few ISO stops IMO and the noise at mid-high ISO is easily removed. Heres a handheld set I took the other night...
A. 1/6 24mm ISO640
B. 1/4 24mm ISO1000
C. 1/4 18mm ISO640
D. 1/8 14mm ISO640

Hi Steve,
Only no 2 loading up, the others say I am "forbidden to enter". No 2 of the big green egg looks pretty good though, very sharp.

Forbidden for me too

Edit: Just tried again and could see all the pictures. I sure don't see a noise problem with them. Nice pics!

It's the pbase url problem - make sure there's nothing between www and pbase except the dot. Easiest thing to do (I assume this applies to most browsers) is to right click on the thumbnail in your gallery and select "Copy link location", not image location. Fix 'em up, I wanna see your pictures!

Works fine, looks fine but maybe a bit small if the purpose is to demonstrate camera capabilities. Any PP we should know about here?

For some reason any attempt to link to the pages doesnt work. I will try and upload a full size crop in a moment.

PP consisted of a light brush with Neat Image and a low radius sharpening after resizing (0.3 X 90) . That was it. Noise at 640 was really not bad.

They look great to me. Of course, I have never had issues with the K10D's image quality, I think it's great.
