I had just come out of a Sushi place and hadn't reset my ISO to something more sane. This is at ISO2500 - I *think* the EXIF data is intact. I might have had 1/3 stop +EV in camera. This is basically adjusted in LR2, with very little NR applied. This is a K20D with the 35mm f2.8 Macro Limited, one of my favorite lenses already.
NICE 'mistake'...excellent shot, grasshopper like bugs are fun...and the EXIF is all there...thanks for that, so many folks leave that part out. Sure makes learning what to expect from various settings easier.

Really nice natural shot...I like the expression on her face, kinda playful yet as if she is up to something (when is a woman NOT up to something???!! ) at the same time...
She actually asked ME to take her photo, and of course, I obliged I am just happy I was able to get an in focus shot. My skills at focusing manual lenses on my DSLRs is less than stellar. Especially in the dark...

Hi rawr you ask "what are the ISO and lense etc parameters for your photos?". Sorry for omitting these data: Both shot at F/9.5 and 1/20 sec - ISO 1600 with Sigma DC 17-70mm F2.8-4.5. The supermarket shot 25 mm and Wendys Icecream etc at 17 mm focal length.
BTW the exif data should be very complete if you can see it (Bridge perehaps)
I know 1600 ISO is not very advaeturous but I must admit to have been somewhat sceptical of ISO 1600 and higher.
Regards
Ron McDermott

we're all suckers for the cute ones...hehehehe...but really a nice shot. And if it helps, I have not used MF for another other than tirpod mounted product shots using LV in decades. Every time I try I lose patience and remind myself why I paid around a grand for the darned camera...yours are perfection compared to attempts of mine!

Here's one with a GX10 with a Tokina 70-210mm. The shot was taken at 210mm, 1/45 shutter, f4.5 and iso 1600. Handheld. (shows how well shake reduction works)
Here's a link to the full size JPEG file. http://www.id-photos.net/images/SG104620.jpg

Here is another practice shot using ISO 6400 and using DOF to add a bit to the shot. Again another dull as heck subject, but I'm still getting a feel for the system and liking it more every day. No PS PP to get the look I was trying for and I like that part. I did obviously convert to greyscale mix in LR2.4 played with red, orange and a couple other channels red most of all. No noise reduction and a small bit of sharpening (sharpening=90, size=0.6, detail=70, masking=0)

I am constantly impressed with the detail preserved even at high ISO. I also cannot wait to get a K7 if the K20D gives me this much control already...looking forward to the added abilities of the K7 even more than previously. Though i am starting to want to keep the K20D for quite a while before move to a K7...then I try and use Live View and I get better...

K20D, DA 35mm f2.8 Macro, 1/60th, ISO 6400, no crop, no NR

I love the feel of these shots. I really like the way the sensor handles 6400 when rendering in black and white. It's such a visceral, pointillistic rendition, but detailed... and any OOF area turns into random dots. Nice!

IAlthough, honestly, by direct comparison, the Tri-X at 1600 looks grainier (and retains less detail) than my K20D @3200 printed full frame on an 8.5x11 sheet of photo paper!
I notice that the noise in this pic, while kind of cool in general, has a slightly annoying patterned look to it (compared to e.g. film grain, which looks completely random).

I wonder if you could somehow add some more high-frequency noise in PP to improve the look!
