    I saw these guys playing chess and wanted to snap a picture, but it was pretty low light and I did not want to flash them (they were very concentrated on their game and I did not want to disturb them). When I transfered the image to my computer it looked pretty dark, so I went B&W with it and messed with the levels to get something out of it. I wasn't too crazy with the results:

    It's been a while since I posted here.
    Stopped by the junkyard last night. Lots of adventure to be done there

    A day at the races

    Hi folks,

    I've been lurking for a bit but thought I would solicit some feedback. I've had my D40 for a year but am still pretty green in most aspects of photography.

    First question? I'm pretty gun shy when it comes to upping the ISO at all because of noise fears. Can someone allay my fears or give me some basic guidelines, for, say, sports?


    320 / 5.6 / 300mm / ISO 200

    Other feedback/post-processing suggestions welcome.

    I've shot so much sports either indoors or at night that I don't even hesitant to use ISO 1600; however, a noise reduction program will probably come in handy--writing for the non-D3/D300/D700 users like myself. There are numerous examples in my Flickr photostream, especially the night time baseball photos.

    Attached is a photo I took this morning in Utah--the uploaded file doesn't look as good for some reason.

    Welcome.
    Don't worry about using higher ISO. In reality you will be hard pressed to see any difference in pictures between ISO 200 and ISO 400 and ISO 800 will still produce great results most of the time. Once you get to ISO 1600 you will see a bit of noise but would you rather have a slightly noisy photo or no photo? Noise can be fixed with software it's a bit hard to recreate an image from memory.
    Just go out and take shots and see what they look like to you. If you don't try you will never know what happens.
    As far as the picture you posted I like it but I would have cropped it just behind the riders on the right so that the image didn't end with somebodies backside but instead with a little bit of space for the lead rider to be riding into.

    Looks good to me, bet the original large is outstanding.
