any noise gurus around?

to all of your noise ninjas out there.. what do you think about this.
i have ran noiseware pro, and the face gets blurry, i suppose i could mask it , but i wanna know what you think. and if by some reason you think the the lower quarter of the image is anything but a lost cause id like to hear that too, but i have already accepted that fate.

Re: any noise gurus around?

A lot of what you have is dust spots and scratches. You should have considerable improvement if you try Filter>Noise>Dust&Scratches, on this low resolution you attached values of 5 and 35 should work well.
You can improve the lower 1/4 by duplicating the image and set the blend mode to Multiple, add a layer mask and then add a linear black to white gradient on the mask to allow the multiply to be applied only the the bottom 1/4 (or as much as you need). Then Crtl J to duplicate that layer (it will automatically be set to Multiply). With the remaining noise you could try Noiseware but use the Detail Tab and restrict the filter to the High Freq noise.
Good luck with the restoration.
Regards, Murray
