[Closed] Photo Theme Challenge, Week #23 - Noise [Deadline: Friday, November 17]
Do you think modern noise reduction has gone too far? Do you think noise can ever add to the atmosphere of a photo? Then submit something that shows that noise is not always bad, and that you don't need to apply advanced AI to remove it!
Heavy crop at ISO 9000. Gives a bit of pointilism effect.
Well, that's a little creepy...
I took this photo of Mt. Rainier through the airplane window as I left Seattle. I've actually tried to do noise reduction on it, but it ends up looking like plastic haha. Somehow I feel like the noise implies detail that your brain sorta fills in. So I've left the noise and I like it that way.
Would this bike (seen in Hawaii) be the same without the characteristic noise of that impressive motor?
No - so noise contributes definitely to that photo ;-)
