ken reminded me that i hadnt posted the process/program i used to get what i got on the woman in church. i'm pretty sure it was the program Unshake. this is a stand-alone program for helping to remove images taken with camera shake and severe blur. there is another one out there like this, that is experimental, but i cant seem to find it on my harddrive at the moment.
also, krishna reminded me of another idea, convolving. harry's filters (plugin) has just such a filter/process. it's in the 'Other' section and has both a convolver and convolver pro filter. i ran a number of passes and settings and got several different results, but this one seems to be pretty good. bear in mind that i also did a little cloning to remove small parts of damage before and after making some passes with convolver pro. i also didnt try to do anything with her hand, just the head.
