If you are shooting at a lower resolution your images will look very grainy. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
I'm shooting in RAW and post processing through Adobe CS2/Bridge/Camera Raw.
Well, it sounds like you know what you're doing, the only thing I can add is that grain/noise shows up pretty quick on underexposed images (not that your posted image looks underexposed).

Ecks--I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm having a lot of fun doing it!
I'm pretty sure underexposure is creating some of the problems. Which is somewhat of a catch22 with shooting these tarpon jumps. Pat Ford told me to set the exposure compensation at -1/3 to -1/2 stop. His rationale was that your camera is metering blank water and sky just before the fish jumps and doesn't compensate quickly enough for a silver/reflective fish exploding into the frame, which gets blown out without the compensation.
I tried it both ways--the shots without compensation adjustments have less noise, but the highlights on the fish are getting clipped pretty badly.
Thanks for the reply.
