Re: G1 X MkII, ISO 1600, from RAW in LR 5.4, no noise reduction

Now that we've been allowed to see your singer in her full many-pixel glory, I think you've struck a pretty nice balance between noise and detail. The noise is obviously obvious, but NOT distracting; conversely, see how gracefully (cannot think of another word) her necklace and the shadows of her eyelashes are rendered.

About that 4-tone banding on the forearm and (as Trevor pointed out) the nose: even if it began as a "result of TV studio keylight", couldn't it have been exacerbated by a combination of vibrance, clarity and WB settings in LR?
