Happy to hear that Guido! Very nice result, if I may... maybe the background is a bit too dark?
yes you are right. The reason is, thogh I unsed darks there still was too much noise in the background. Maybe I exaggerated it a bit in the postprocessing.
Next Pic will be better. 😉
Noise is part of the game, I usually like an even "noisy" background. Very mild denoise might be nice to have, but I tend not to because it always hurts details. Personal choice though, main point is that we're happy with whatever we do. 🙂
