Top: 1/20s ISO 200
Bottom: 1/160s ISO 1600

100% crops from identically and minimally processed raw images.
Don't be distracted by the beauty of the subject, or my obvious photography skills.

Since most people are getting it right, I've edited the poll to ask "where does the increased noise come from"?
