Lots of people state that is not correct to set ISO at high values so to avoid noise. In this picture you follow a right techn rule: to set high ISO so to use right speed so avoiding blur......your picture is great, clean, beautiful lights and deep darkness (all readable). Technically well executed work. Great compo. LIKEd

PS Sensors nowaday are more reliable than in the past. Low noise even at high ISO. So "why to use low ISO is a must" as I read everytime I approach this matter!?
Can anyone give me a reply? (Till now I've not understodd what rules to follow or which is the best!)

I tend to use the lowest ISO that allows me to set the motion as I want.
If I need a particular shutter speed, and I've got the aperture where it's needed, then you really do only have ISO left.

Modern sensors are massively better than they were originally, so I wouldn't get too hung up on rules from early on in the digital error. Go with the settings you require to get the shot. If you can get away with a lower ISO, and still have the motion and depth of field that you want, then that's a bonus, but I wouldn't give up on a shot just because the ISO needs to be raised a bit.
