I used Imagenomics Noiseware, adjusted for the color cast and select curves for lighting and contrast.

Cheers!

Re: Removing noise from photo

I gave this a shot...I used the burn to draw out some detail....
I also adjusted the tones a little
far from great, but I didn't do a lot of polishing

Re: Removing noise from photo

Here is my go. As far as retouching, beyond noise reduction, all i did was a color correction for shadows, highlights, and shadows. The image, because it's so soft and underexposed with so much noise, has several other problems that need to be addressed.

My results aren't all that different then some other peoples. The one thing I would say is to use noise reduction sparingly and selectively. Trying to balance noise reduction without sacrificing detail is the important part. In doing this, know that no one pass needs to take care of everything, because it usually wont. I made several passes, one light overall, another one masked for the background, one fore the skin, and another for the clothing. Some I let noise ninja generate the profile, in other situations I defined the sample points.

Smile Re: Removing noise from photo

Gerald,

Here is my attempt at reducing the noise. I believe the effects would be better if the file were a .TIFF or .PSD... but I hope you get the idea of what I did.

First, I ran the image through OnOne's Photo Tools 2.5 and applied the "Reduce Noise" filter 3 times. Next, I ran the "Smoother A2" filter 1 time in order to smooth out some of the skin tone blotches caused by the noise filter. Next, I ran the "Clarity" filter 2 times. This caused the photo to really pop, and brought old Willie out of the shadows!!

After running the OnOne filters, I loaded the selection back into PS and ran the Dust and Scratches filter with very low settings (2 pixels with 5 threshold if I remember correctly. That also helped blend out any of the remaining artifacts from the noise filters.

Still too much noise for my liking...just a real quick attempt. (It actually looks better on my screen in full resolution than the attached jpeg does.)

I hope this helps!
