Nice shots. I'm not sure if I'm seeing noise, but what ISO did you use?

Well spotted - 'twas after sundown, and ISO 800 for both shots enabled greater depth of field. Shouldn't have been a problem for the 5D MkIII though... Lesson learned is next time use a tripod, ISO 100 and longer exposure :o

I wasn't sure since I'm viewing from a laptop screen only :oops:

Definitely great shots. I can't do any macro shots handheld, and no way I'll crank my ISO up to ISO 800 since I only have a T2i :cry:

Is your noise reduction (regular and on long exposures) on? I think the default is off, no? It kinda helps with my T2i, but I'm a bit frustrated with a pic I took just yesterday. I have noise showing, and I used ISO 100 (similar look to your pic, so that's why I'm not sure if it's just my screen or not).

I think you're being a bit OCD about noise. I can't see ANY in your first shot, and it's really faint in the 2nd one and only visible at all in the flare area. I usually can't see any in my T1i's shots at ISO 800 unless I look really close AND there are dark areas to look in.

:lol:

I guess it's more than I'm used to for being at ISO 100 (never really noticed any noise from my T2i until I started shooting macro shots), and just like you, if shooting regular shots, I can use up to ISO 800.
