having fun with iso 1600 ...

I might have said I would avoid using ISO 1600. However, I had to eat my words after I found that handheld shooting with ISO 1600 could be a big fun too ... I was attracted by these night scenes of the Third Street, but the light was so dim and it's impossible to set up any tripod in the mid of the street. I therefore decided to try the last resort - ISO 1600 of the F10. As expected, the noise was pretty noticeable; yet, totally unexpected was that the noise wasn't annoying at all. Instead, I found that the noise actually added to the atmosphere of these night shots and I loved the effect so much that I liked to call such noise as "digital grain" from then on.
