Reflections and Shadows, SLAM

Something a bit eerie is happening in the basement of SLAM.  Here is an example of accidental in-camera special effects.  I shot this through the corner of a plexiglass exhibit case holding a horned African Mask casting the shadow on the wall.  The white door is actually a reflection of the wall in front of the case.

Technical: Nikon D700, Nikon 50mm f1.4G, ISO 1600, f/2.8 @ 1/125s, handheld.   Unusual here is the amount of noise visible in the mid tone area.  I'd love to know why most shots at ISO 1600 have no noise, but a few, like this one, have overall pronounced artifacts.
