After the party ended

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 21 October 2015 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Well, I was a little surprised at the lack of interest in the Roker Park illuminations in Sunderland this year, perhaps I'd chosen a night that was too cold and wet for most people.
However what was more disappointing was the performance of my small Fujifilm pocket camera, I'd taken it in haste and to see what its EXR processor could produce using the special night scene low noise high iso setting. It produces a .jpg by fusing three exposures together, a rather small .jpg and with a surprising amount of residual digital noise, I was not impressed!

The results which I have posted have been subject to multiple layers and blend modes, as well as Imagenomic's Noiseware to counter this issue.

Yes, quite a horrid looking result.

Well folks, I've decided to take an enforced little break away from this daily photoblog, in all honesty I have no new material available to show at all, and I'm finding the demands of being a single working parent are taking up 90% of my available time. I will be back, I hope, in a couple of weeks time - there are some local events that I would dearly like to photograph.

Contrary to your disappoint, I think it's a good shot. The little bit of remaining noise is fine.
