ISO 400

Dave wy are you shooting with ISO 400, I have seen a few pictures from you all taken with high ISO , lot's off noise. IMO you make good pictures but step away from the ISO 400 when it is not needed.

Fons, I used 400iso here because of the low light. I was using a 200mm lens, equivalent of 400, as you can see from the details, I had to use the lens wide open and a shutter speed of 1/200 sec. If I had used 200iso, i would have had to use 1/100 sec, too slow to hand hold.
