    Pickled pairs and nasty noise

    Hi There
    I finished work late last night, and when I got back to the house, Emma and Charlie had been making pickled pairs. The light in our kitchen is tricky to say the least, a mixture of tungsten and halogen. i thought I'd give it a go, and here are the results:


    ISO 1100 1/15 f6.3 Nikon D700 + 24-70


    ISO 200 2 sec f7.1 Nikon D700 + 24-70

    That was the second attempt - it was propped on the back of a chair (tripod? what's that!)

    The first attempt was: 1/25th sec at ISO 6400 (handheld). It occurred to me immediately that those shadowy browns would be the very worst thing to show the noise, so I employed the chair and changed the ISO.

    Here is the first and second attempt next to each other, 1 at 200 ISO, the other at 6400 - no noise reduction (or any other processing) in either case. Of course it's obvious which shot was at 6400 ISO, but hey - it would clean up well, and what's really the point, the colour and DR is still good

    I think it shows pretty clearly why people are so impressed with that Nikon sensor.

    Jono, You have to be careful with the choice of your pictures. I can decipher Emma's recipe. I see cloves and allspice there could be one more ingredient it looks like. Post another shot from a slightly different angle and the secret recipe will be in the public domain!

    Where? I'm completely unable to see the recipe in those shots! Maybe I'm going blind!

    I actually prefer the 6400 - it has more character. But then again I'm biased being a D3 owner.

    You guys are killing me. "Pickled Pears" (note spelling) in the UK are known as "Pears in Syrup" in the US. My grandmother used to make them with white wine. I miss her terribly as she passed away 5 years ago at the ripe old age of 95. I think my sister has her recipe.

    Here in Texas, I've always heard them called Pickled Pears along with Pickled Watermelon Rind.
