Before the show began, the delicate lighting gave a perfect opportunity to show the noise that comes along with ISO 102,400. Even at a small size, you can see it, especially along the edge of the ring and in the half-lit seats, but given how high the sensitivity is, we’re impressed. Shot with pre-production Nikon D3S, 24-70mm f/2.8G ED zoomed to 24mm at f/9, 1/320 second, ISO 102,400, handheld.Philip Ryan
