Hey, My friend would have really liked this photo to have worked out. unfortunately there is some kind of smoke or reflection from the flash in front of the lens!

Anyone care to take a shot at cleaning it up?

It would be much appreciated!! THANKS

haha wow. i have been playing with this photo for hours, and have nothing better. I'm not sure if you caught the 'hidden' message in the photo.. to say the least, the girl sitting on the phalic symbol is a valuable part of the photo.

thanks for playing with it aladyforty!

Well as I am sure you know saving this is not passoble, the best detail is stored in the red channel but even so it is not enough to make it viable.

Pretty rough pic, were you standing in a spider web or blowing your bongloard smoke in front of the lens:blah:. This is the best I could do, not much better.

Some Haze removal plugin and some high pass sharpening, some area burning and level work. I also slightly desaturated the cyan channel. A little improvement.
