Description

I used this object to test using lower ISO to increase dynamic range and hopefully decrease noise. I picked ISO 200 which I have not used with the D800 and exposed at least 60 seconds long than I usually image with ISO 400. I was reasonably satisfied with the dynamic range and colors and there was much less noise in the areas of low signal as well. Enough so that I'll be using 200 for the next series of images. This image was processed with only ArcsinH stretch, Curves saturation, Dark Structure enhancement script, and Unsharp mask.
