Well after two posts on noise it was time to set about taking the images for the exercise. The weather was very bad so for once I could take the images in the house.
- Nikon D3s
- Nikon 24-70 2.8 lens
- no other lighting apart from day-light.
I took two sets of images, the first set consisted of a white wall and door. The second set was of a chair, a bookcase and a red wall to see if the effects were greater with more colour in the shot.

And now for a set of images with a large percentage of white in the shot
Again screen shots showing detail
I think that the results are very interesting.
There is a greater difference in the white images on the right. But are all the images usable? It may be the case that this is the only image that you could get, looking at the image below taken by a photographer in London, would it matter if there was some noise? I’ll let you make up your mind?
