Both of these pictures were taken in early morning with the sun coming in thru a window above the dogs. The couch is black. Both were taken in RAW at 1600 ISO. Comments anyone?

I really like the second one, but why are you using ISO 1600? It doesn't appear as if the dog is going anywhere...

For these two it just happens that I had been experimenting with that speed for action photos, and didn't think to set it back. Since then I've used it a lot indoors, and even outside when I didn't care about depth of field. I haven't been able to see any practical difference in image quality by switching to lower speeds so far.

The first one is my favorite, even though there are a couple of areas that are blown out. It loses a lot viewing it in a smaller format. The haze just above his head is almost invisible this way.

I like the white on white effect you have in the second picture... I think they are great portraits of your friends. Good work... And in my humble opinion, for using iso 1600, I tend to use this as well in area of low light, it just makes taking a shot in low light a little easier... I am a bit of a newbie though...
Cheers,

Well the first is nice, but if the ISO was small then the zone will be clearer. Like said if you used a tripod and with the right light like you have here. the picture will be more crisp and you could go into PS and soften it up alittle.

I like the second one the grays in the zones are just about right. And boy does he look comfy.

LOL, well it's true that if i were able to go upstairs and get my tripod and if I could set it up in front of them without disturbing them (have to move a coffee table) and if they were still in the same position by the time I was ready, I could have used a much slower ISO. :)

They were just opportune moments when I wasn't planning on taking a picture in the first place. :)
Thanks for the advice!

I love #1, very nicely done :) ISO1600 was appropriate, your shutter was only 1/10, even for things that are apparently staying still there's often still a little movement. People standing still you might get at 1/30th if you're really lucky, more likely 1/60th to 1/100th. A bit of grain doesn't hurt this type of shot anyway.
