This picture was totally worthless when I first took it .... late in the evening and on extreme telephoto ... which made it look like it was in a digital ... rain/snow storm. Adrian told me about a software package that removes digital noise and I picked it up ... now the picture isn't so bad. I am beginning to believe that the "perfect" pictures in the magazines don't all start out as perfect.

Oh and my miracle is that I now have a picture that I like and I didn't think I could save it. However .... the real deal is that God does fantastic art work and allows us to see it from time to time.

Beautiful picture. I love those rickety windmills. They're everywhere around here. You've captured exactly what I love about them.

Nice software, I'd say. What's it called?

thanks for the comments .. it is called Ninja Noise removal .... teachers and students get discounts. If you run any picture through it .. will remove the noise ... at least it has for me so far with no loss of detail.

Here is one that shows the results very well .... first is noise and then after filtering..

I love the colours.

You can do some amazing things with software to improve photographs. I'm glad you were able to save what you thought was a very average shot.

Nice praise photo!

The software is Noise Ninja and it is very popular with photo enthusiasts. The great thing is that in poor light you can crank up the ISO to prevent camera blur (which you can't correct in PP) and remover the digital noise later with Noise Ninja.

Good job Jim! =D>

This is great information, Adrian. Thanks!

And that's a gorgeous picture, Jim! I love those Texas landscapes. They look like...home.
