  1. D500 and Nikon 200-500mm, hand held in low light "overcast/dusk" exposure bumped to +1, ISO 6400.
    I believe that is the limit for the D500 and capturing anything that would be considered acceptable. Images cleaned up with DXO PhotoLab Elite and Prime noise reduction.

  2. nice and sharp

    I would tighten the crops
  3. For all the talk about losing DR at high ISO these look pretty darn good.
  4. Thanks Randy, when you mean tighten the crops, I believe you meant the perched ones, correct.
    Thanks Dan. I tried to see what ISO 6400 looks like and if it's usable, I usually don't go past ISO 3200 with the D500, but that's just me.
  5. Did a tighter crop on numbers 1&2.
  6. Looks better
    Try for more space in the direction the bird is looking
