What am I missing?
I stumbled across a a cool picture of an Osprey (Vertical take off and landing) not the bird.
When I clicked on the full size picture I was a bit surprised by the grain of the image. It was taken with a D800 at ISO 800 and a shutter speed of 1/2500 app f9. I'm used to seeing this type of grain on darker images but not this type of seemingly brighter pictures. Is this expected, the D800 has a pretty nice sensor? I don't own one myself but if I could scrape up the funds I would like to own one too. To be honest I don't know if this was a much darker image and some post processing was done.
