Lightroom 3 and High ISO Images

Hover this image to see what Lightroom 3 can do with a hopelessly noisy ISO 12,800 photo:

High ISO noise reduction in Lightroom 3.

(This is a 100% crop from my Canon EOS 50D.)

And since I can set up defaults based on the image’s ISO setting, I can make it do that automatically.

    And can you tell what corrections did you apply to this photo?

    Thanks in advance!

    As far as I can see, I used the following settings:

    Luminance: 27
    Detail: 85
    (Contrast: 0)

    Color: 40
    Detail: 50

    Don’t know why I didn’t include them in the blog post … =)

    Have fun!
