What is the deal with the mottled look to the background, particularly on the owl shots? This seems to be popping up quite regularly at relatively low ISO on several pics posted on this forum. Do you see this as normal? have you noticed anything like this in other shots at low ISO?

Hi,

there was a lot of difference in exposure between the owl and the very dark background, I was exposing for the owl!

This was shot at iso 800 and no noise reduction was used, I think it's quite good results condsidering the circumstances.

Appreciate your comment, thanks

Yep, the grain in backgrounds appears to be a characteristic of the D7100 images, but detail in the animals subjects is excellent, however. The question is what is the solution for smoothing the background without affecting the subject?

Hi Jon,

I'm thinking the shots were underexposed to protect the highlights on the very light bird.

I guess I'm not  as observant or critical as I really don't notice the grainy background on these shots but can see it at higher ISOs.  If it really bothered me I would do selective noise reduction on the background with topaz denoise or noise ninja with layer mask.

Nice shots BTW!

Thank you for your thoughts and your comments.

These are crops and some at 800, which would definitely show grain on either the D7000 or the D7100.  It's early days to be getting worked up about grain, gentlemen.  The right raw conversion settings are still being found by all who care.

Correct, appreciate your comment.

That has to be the sleekest, best groomed wild fox that I have ever seen.  Great job on that shot.  The detail and sharpness is pretty sweet.

Thank you.

Great pictures. I envy you guys that live close to areas with so much varied wildlife. I live a big metropolitan city and all we have is Dove and (ugly) ducks

Even ducks and doves make great subjects if the light is kind.

Have a good day and thanks for your comments.

Very nice work and good portent for  the D7100. Nice high key treatment of the tree. The spot of blood on left side of the innocent looking fox's snout fortuitous.

Re: D7100 superb camera gives some great results.

Hi Tony:

I'm new here as I just bought a D7100 (first Nikon in many years) and it's great to see such fabulous work posted here..., the facial-feather details on the owl shots are almost unbelievable, and the overall look of the fox image is stunning! Looking forward to learning from you.
