comment Why do these images taken at significantly different ISO appear equal in quality?
there was a tripod, no glass, also in one shot a car went by which is why you see the some reflection in lower left corner... i'd like to hear more about why you state that the camera settings were counter intuitive? at first i shot with low ISO to get best wall detail.. following that, i increased it to decrease apperture, and capture subjects crossing in front of the wall

comment Why do these images taken at significantly different ISO appear equal in quality?
thanks Russel. i did realize that aperture difference does not help a direct comparison (did not think of it at the time of shooting). Does depth of field matter that much when shooting an object that is equal distance all throughout the photo (such as a wall) ? also, why f/11 and not f/5.6 ?

comment Why do these images taken at significantly different ISO appear equal in quality?
yes, i am no hardware guru, but actually image quality and low noise at high ISO were major selling points in this camera for me. The reason for the question above is just me trying to understand the sensor, and exactly what to expect at different settings. thanks for taking the time to answer

jrista, good point. i just felt a little bit silly that i posted my question before actually zooming to 100%, because at that level the difference was apparent. so i thought my question was not that good which is why accepted so quickly.

actually those were "fine" jpegs. i thought it was raw, but it was dark and i set it incorrectly. would raw make much difference in respect of iso noise??

after zooming, even the lit areas are grainy at 1600

you're right.. i zoomed in to 100%, and focused on upper area. i get it now :)

nice! but how did you get to that dialog ? i tried right clicking and "get info" which shows some info about the exposure, but not this screen

comment What can be done to replicate the look of Andrew Bayda photographs?
wow. i was not aware of this work. thanks for posting about this! i'd also love to learn how to get my photos one step closer to this sort of contrast and clartity

accepted Will switching from a Nikon D60 to a Canon EOS 60D be better for night photography, city photography, and portraits?
