Might be over processed in NN, let me know what you think.

Enjoy!

Good shots. You can see that at ISOs 3200 & 6400 that they are a bit noisy even after using Noise Ninja. ISO 1600 looks like the threshold. For these anyway.

nice Geoff, the 3rd one looks a tad over processed to me, but very negligible...where's the tourney?
Yeah I thought so, but still thought it looked pretty good. Was my first go around with NN with the D300 as most of my stuff was ISO 1600 and below. The tournament is in Northbridge.

Yeah but still a whole lot better than ISO 1600+ on a D200, and I would be willing to sell ISO 1600 off the D200, I feel I could go to ISO 3200 with no problems as long as I limited it to 8x10 and smaller.

Hey Geoff,
Wow, I really like #1, and #2 has that old style "kick and deliver" much like some pitchers in the 40's and 50's (whose names I can't remember!), even though you can tell there was noise left in #2 it's still very good. Well done, now show us the U16 softball big girls when you get a chance.

Hey Steve, thanks. I have seen some interesting "kicks" to the plate. As for the noise. I did a 50/50, removal of noise but keeping as much detail as possible. Noise is ok, as long as its not too much. Then again I am responding to a PRO, so I know you know.

Still waiting on the confirmation on the U16s. Hope to hear soon on that bet it will be intense.
