Nikon D70, AF Nikkor 70-300 f4-5.6 ED D, 1/4000 f11, iso 1600. Piacenza, Italy.
Post processing : noise filtering, saturation, sharpening, minor cloning. The image is a 50% crop from the original 6 megapixel image.
The use of high iso permits to freeze the action. Here, I used 1600 the get a shutter speed of 1/4000 of second.
I applied the noise reduction twice; the first time I used a quite light NR on the entire photo and then I "split" the image into subject and background and I applied a second, very strong, filtering only on BG.
