Re: Portrait and auto ISO to 1600 test on D5100

I'd be fixing the blown highlights (by covering the holes in the blinds while shooting) before working about the noise. Whatever you did to smooth the face, see if you can apply the same technique to the rest of the subject's body. Having a smooth face and then noisy detailed arms including every crease and blemish isn't the best idea. The post processing isn't subtle and doesn't blend as well as it could but it's by no means the worst I've seen (or done myself).

But all of the above is nitpicking. Continually trying to improve is admirable, but don't forget to give yourself a pat on the back once in a while. It's a nice shot despite it's imperfections...and you know what I can nit pick even prize winning photos!
