At the posted resolution, there is no noise showing. Didn't even find it when I went looking for it. Standard noise reduction in PS and ACR should work if you have it in the full res version. As a matter of fact, I spent a little time this afternoon learning a new (only to me) technique. This is an old CS2 tutorial (external link), but it sure works for what I've tried it on. You will have noise at long exposures.

edit: I see you shot at 400. When you're on a tripod anyway, there's no reason to, unless you just WANT to increase the noise. Shoot at the lowest ISO possible to reduce noise.

Nice shots. Were these taken with the 70-200? If so, these shots are either a testament to your ability to get close to birds or for the cropping abilities of the 7D.

Thanks !
A little of both ,100% crop so the compliments will have to go to the 7D, but I have a feeder and a branch set up on my deck so I can get fairly close ..

Now if only something other than a sparrow would show up I'd be all set :-)

Perhaps that is my problem? I generally run a noise removal in PS after I resize the image to 1024X683.

Indeed, I generally shoot low ISO, but for this particular engine, I opted to do a shorter exposure at a higher ISO to avoid sitting in the same place for even longer.

Very nice photos in your link, by the way.

Yes. That was a general statement. Sometimes, you have to compromise and do the best you can. On second look, I did see noise right at the bottom left and right. I'd run the noise reduction on the hi-res version, rather than waiting until you shrunk it. Just my preference. Maybe someone else could offer better info. And remember to sharpen as you reduce. I tend to do a multi-step reduction, using a slight USM at each step.

I'll mess around with PS a bit more and see what I get with a different approach to editing.

Thanks!

QUOTED IMAGE

Love ur photos. How do you process the "warm" color tone? standard pictrue style or?
I am a happy owner of 24L and 100L, looking at your lenses, looks like we are on the same track. But somehow I found that 24L is not that "sharp" wide open compared to my sigmalux 50 when I was with nikon. Do you agree or is it user error? I mostly choose single focus point which I usually point to where I want the focus to be, in single shot mode and wide open I dont get a lot of keeper with 24L while I do get a lot of keeper with the sigma + nikon.
What is your setting when shooting baby? Is spot AF better? I mostly use centre weighted actually.

Thanks guyverias. For this shot, I converted the RAW via ACR 6.1. Settings were: 1/250s, f/2, iso400, evaluative.

Adjusted white balance to 5300 (shot w/ flash bounced off the ceiling) and kept everything else default (5 blacks, +50 brightness, +25 contrast), added lens vignetting (-50). Once imported into CS5, I just did a quick Auto Tone adjustment. Tagged my signature and that's it.

As for sharpness of the lens, I don't have any other wide primes to compare with. It is sharper than the 24L classic I had for a week wide open. It is sharper than the Canon 50/1.4 I had previously before I sold it. But I've never shot with the sigmalux 50 nor a Nikon. My only guess is that the Nikon images appear sharper due to Nikon's default settings/renderings? Most of the time when I see Nikon images, I see that there is more saturation and contrast than those of the Canon counterparts. This seems to be a "general" thing I notice when comparing the two manufacturers and I couldn't imagine that it's because all Nikon users like to dial up their contrast and saturation in post. :lol: But I guess anything is possible.

I hear you. I'm just getting into birding and it has proven to be quite difficult. The Robin's pose for me, but I always found Robin's boring...

Thanks for the workflow I really appreciate it. Havent tried anything with bounce flash though. I read somewhere that canon AA filter causing some softness, in that case would be appropriate if we do more in camera sharpening or just shoot raw? It's been a long time since I last use raw, mostly I tend to do everything right in jpeg, I just got 7D for like a week and havent got time to learn the camera yet.
Seeing plenty of excellent pictures out of the 7D I'm sure that it may be user error. Kind of confused with canon custom functions :confused:
