In this day and age of digital smoothness, the noise in #1 bothers me a bit, 
but not in #2.  Maybe it is more pronounced in #1 or maybe it is just that 
the background is more uniform so it shows up more.  Did you have to lighten 
#1 a bit and that might have brought out more "grain"?  Of course, relating 
this to my long time film usage, this is wonderful, to be able to grab a 
shot at ISO 6400 and see anything in amongst the grains is truly amazing.

When I'm taking photos out of the window of the moving car, I find it's
better to set the shutter speed at about 2000 so I'm shooting a lot of high
ISO photos.  It's a gamble that sometimes works.  I like this one - even
though there is a lot of noise at 6400, it's a film-grain-like noise to me:

This is another one that works for me:

What do you think?
