Pretty image. But you have too much noise. The noise is caused from shooting that with an ISO of 1250. With your shutter speed of 800 and your f/stop at f/8 you could have shot with a lot lower ISO and not have all of that noise. But that noise could be removed in PP still. Other then that looks to be a good image.

Thanks to both. I had been shooting birds earlier and I guess I forgot to lower the ISO. Still learning! I need to take the time to compose and re-check the settings.

Yup it's noisier than an ac/dc concert and probably slightly oversaturated.

I don't think that noise is solely from the ISO. I think that it has been pushed in post. Don't be afraid to use high ISO - but make sure you do not under expose. On the other hand - you did not really need 1/800th ....

Way too grainy... Dial it down a few notches next time... It was a GREAT idea.. Just needs a little massaging... Keep up the good work!!!

Re-checking is good. I've learned that myself. Especially going from one mode to another. Took me a bit to remember to check all my settings before shooting. :D

Wow, that is some extreme noise reduction. Did you have NR set on the highest setting or something?

With 1/800 shutter speed and 105mm, you could have easily used ISO 200 and 1/200 and have captured this image with the same exposure. That is about the worst ISO 800 photo I've never seen.. and that includes my 6MP Drebel.
