    Wink Sunbathing Au Natural

    I was surprised to spot this bathing beauty soaking up some rays, and even more surprised that he stuck around while I snapped a few shots of him. Usually you just hear the 'plop' when they hit the water as soon as they see you. E-330, 50-200, C&C always welcome.

    Thanks guys. Phil - the first one was 1/40, F11, iso400, handheld, and that was just luck with no IS! Focal length was 200mm, and I was around three feet away. Pretty close to minimum focus distance. It's a full frame. The second one was also 1/800 at f3.5, iso400, but I was six or seven feet away. It's about a 50% crop.

    Andy, David and Luc, thanks for the look! David - this guy was a bruiser, too! Would have had trouble fitting in my hand, and you know I thought I detected a bit of a southern accent.

    I love the way the sun lights up his skin, great sense of lighting.

    Is this a jpeg ooc, or do you use a specific convertor to control the E-330's noise at ISO 400 (I don't use mine above 200 for most things)?

    I shoot raw, and this was developed using LR2. No noise reduction on these at all, though I do sometimes use either the NR in LR, or Neat Image. Its funny, sometimes the E-330's noise is noticeable at 400, but I've found that more often than not, it doesn't really show up.

    I suppose it's dependant on the lighting as well, if there's good light and the scene is well exposed the noise is a lot less noticeable.
