    It appears you ran it through noise reduction software? It looks strangely "smooth".

    Even so, at that size it looks really good, particularly the furry hat, which would be the first casualty to aggressive noise reduction.

    There was some processing done to it. Nothing crazy really. A little noise reduction, some color balance to take out some of the red cast (I still need to work on my custom White balance settings for this picture control), minor curves and levels adjustments and voila!

    Here's the original (SOOC except for the crop and resize for the web (Edit: I also changed the color space to sRGB)): Sorry for the two photos in one day...

    I was shooting in caves that day! ISO5000 with the 70-200 wide open and I was hardly getting a 1/60 shutter speed. I don't take the D300 up to ISO6400. The colors go straight to hell at ISO6400. ISO5000 is still okay, but you better get your exposure spot on (ie. slightly overexposed).

    Of course I then went out to Calumet Photo and tried out the D700 with the new 70-200 VRII.. F@ck me was ISO3200 clean. I had to put that combo down right away and walk out of the store before I got myself into some serious trouble.

    You were in serious trouble the second the thought entered your mind to walk into the store in the first place... lol

    (and Jason, I wasn't insinuating that you were saying it was bad, merely discussing the technical aspects.)

    After the Rain

    Here is a shot I took after the day-long rain we had 2 weeks ago finally stopped. The trees in the shot are normally several feet above the water level. This is the Chenango River about a mile North from it's confluence with the Susquehanna in Binghamton, NY, USA.
