The Ottawa Citizen is again using an image of mine as the header for the Our Town section of the news paper today …
Click on the following image for a PDF of the page.
Here is the actual paper, captured with my D7000.
Here’s the original at 800px (click to see the larger size.)
That’s a cheap zoom lens from 1985 shot wide open … and the result is very clean and crisp. The D70s was not known for its high ISO prowess, but this image was shot at 800 ISO and is very clean.
A bit of skill with ACR and Topaz Denoise will compensate for a camera’s minor weaknesses. I consider skills very valuable because you can choose the camera you like to hold instead of the one that has the lowest noise. At the time, I should have been shooting a Digital Rebel, but I have never liked Canon bodies in the hand … Nikon fits me much better.
