I took this photo at a ridiculously high ISO of 6400 — totally unnecessary for the amount of available light — because I wanted to see how the Fujifilm X-T1 performed at high ISO from the standpoint of image noise. I was impressed with the image as it came out of the camera; while there was some noticeable noise in the darker areas of the image, it cleaned up easily in Lightroom.
“Rear Entrance”, Fujifilm X-T1, ISO 6400, f/20 at 1/250th sec., 18.5mm
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” —Helen Keller
Most of my readers are probably already familiar with the famous words of Helen Keller quoted above. It is my assertion that her statement is but a half-truth, omitting even a mention of the doors of sadness that line the corridors of our lives and behave in like manner. If it were not for sadness, I could not know happiness; if it were not for happiness, I could not know I was sad.
