When is the best time to use

high ISO settings on the E500?  I could troll the internet for hours trying to find an answer and get nowhere so knowing many here have or used to own an E500 I thought I'd try my luck here.

I took a series of photos today using ISO1600 and ISO800 in sunny bright conditions and almost all the ISO1600 shots had excessive noise in shaded areas whereas some images shot at ISO800 had the issue.  Tried shooting both into the sun and with the sun and similar results.  So is there a certain light aspect required to shoot higher ISO or should I just ignore those settings and stick with ISO400 and lower?

Two samples from today @ ISO800 to highlight the experience.

positioned carefully to paint a picture
that challenges the eye
and tricks the mind
into thinking, light is a title
and the palette a taste bud
worth tasting.
