    Black-bellied whistling ducks at the Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica. To gain depth of field, I stopped down to f11 and ended up with ISO 12800. (I have versions at a higher aperture and lower ISO.)

    JDM, while my opening image was set at ISO 12800 (for the sake of depth of field), this week's thread is not a competition of grainy images. :rolleyes:

  5. Shun, I was just about to start the thread, but thank you for doing it this week (again). This week's image is from the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry in Emery County, Utah. I was there yesterday doing field investigations. This is a mix of in-situ materials and recreations.

    Maybe it should be. Grain is great, grain is good. The obsession with "sharpness" is often just that, an obsession to the point of OCD.

  8. My offering was shot at ISO 1600, f/8, 1/80s, handheld under available light. Even with VR and some PP it's far less sharp than I had hoped, but still a useful image. (Heavily cropped and down-sampled from a much larger documentary image.) I agree that grain is not necessarily the enemy, but sometimes it's not my friend, either.
