Re: Foliage and a longhaired longhorn

I have to agree with Paul here. The image looks more like a painting when viewed at 100%, not that I normally pixel peep.

The HS series cameras are known for their smearing from NR. My HS20 is set to low permanently and even then I still wish I could turn it off at times.

Even in the original image at 100% I could see the influence of the NR and at ISO 100 this is a fairly quiet image and from about ISO 400 up with HS series cameras you start to get some image degradation after that so NR low is the only way to go.

This image is ISO 400 and even after some PP work for noise and levels its still pretty grainy when looked at for anything other than about a 6 x 4 photo. I fact I'm going to be getting some prints done this morning of the latest bee shots to see what will print well at larger sizes for a collection.

My advise, drop the NR and get better images, that will look good up to A3 size.
