Over the past six weeks I have played around further with the manual setting of my Canon 40D. The noise level has increased and it seems I cannot figure this simple process out by my self any assistance would be helpful. Other than cropping no changes have been made in post processing..thanks in advance..Ken

As someone else noted, the exposure in the second image appears to be pushed via editing relative to the longer exposure. There's no way a 40D should produce an image like that at ISO 100, even on a 30-second exposure. I started out on the 40D and spent a number of late nights at the office making similar exposures and never saw noise like that. Even at ISO 3200 with all NR turned off, the camera doesn't produce that kind of noise. If you haven't made any changes to this image other than cropping (EXIF data is intact), I'd say something is wrong with the camera.
