I am shooting with a T3i not a 7D. But will try the suggestions made. The last shots I posted were shot at I believe with ISO set to auto with max of 1600 set. I have struggled so much with noise that I have tried to sacrifice shutter speed for images not as crisp in focus to try and reduce noise. So do you believe if I increase the sensitivity of the sensor I can increase the shutter speed to get good exposure at higher ISO and I will have less noise?
Also can someone tell me how to see exif data on others pictures on the forum?
Doesn't matter, the T2i, T3i, 60D and 7D (and we are still unsure how different or same the T4i is), all share the same basics for sensor tech. The techniques that work on the 7D work on the T3i. In fact, I have found that the techniques that I employed on the 7D work very well on the 1D4 too, they seem to be more similar than different in how to massage the files, IMO.
I would work in Tv and set the shutter you want to have, then keep raising your ISO until your histogram lies in the right side of the graph, without resting directly on the rightmost edge (increases risk of blowing out highlights). Your images will be better than shooting at ISO 1600 and having underexposed images that you have to brighten up.
There are some browser plugins like ExifViewer 2.0 for Firefox that you can install, then when you right click on an image, you would have an option to view Exif.
I would rather have noisier pics than blurry pics, so I shoot high and clean up noise than shoot low and be unable to do anything about all the blur. Purely a subjective call though, I guess.
