I'd hoped to have some time to go out shooting today, but I didn't manage it until this evening. By which time it was dark and raining so I decided I'd shoot everything at 1600 ISO to see quite how good the 20D's sensor actually is. And I'm impressed. Technically this isn't a great shot; I could have used a lower ISO, and/or a smaller aperture, the framing isn't great, and I don't think the shot is all that interesting, but I guess it's not too bad for a first attempt.

The version I've put up has been run through Noise Ninja, but I also did two other less contrasty, colour versions as I thought people might be interested. Both can be seen here:

The first is a straight shot, i.e. no noise reduction, and the one below it has been run through Noise Ninja. With the full-res versions the noise is much more evident, but considering this was shot at 1600 ISO I'm very impressed.
