In ISO comparisons you need to have a bit of everything, shadow, good range of mid tones, and some highlights plus a range of colours. This shot has all of that, which is why it's an ideal shot to analyse how well a camera deals with various ISO settings. Basically for any performance analysis in a single shot there needs to be as wide a range of colour, tone and detail as possible to judge how a camera deals with each of these factors so thats what makes images such as this very good for the job.
