Snapshot Wins 1st Place

I guess in this case it fit the theme well enough. Not a particularly good photo, but I'll take the win. I think I shot this one from the hip too. Apparently it got zero views as well.

Congrats. I see that there is lost of noise in dark areas. But image was shot with ISO 200. Is it normal for e30? I have just ordered refurbished one.

Of course, you understand it would have been better with FF, ultra shallow DOF, and less noise, right? If had the "right" equipment, it could have gotten zeroth place or even negative oneth place!

Apparently it got zero views as well.

I'm not sure what that means. Does that mean people voted on the basis of the thumbnail pic?

I suppose that's what it means. I can admit to having voted like that before...

Re: Snapshot Wins 1st Place

I checked my LR3 file and I didn't use any noise reduction. Oops. But making it black and white sort of makes noise seem purposeful, or at least more acceptable.
