Hey Rodney,
I think the sepia really works well in this one!

The sepia is better because it doesn't show the color noise as much. I love the pup, but there's a huge amount of noise in the picture - more than I normally see at ISO 1600, unless I had under-exposed and "pushed" the post processing. Patches is precious.

I bought Noise Ninja yesterday and now wished that I had downloaded the trial version first. I'm having trouble figuring out how to get the results I used to get with Neat Image. In any case, since I have the new program, I thought I'd run your first one through it, then added a little sharpening in Lightroom 2. I think I would have been able to get better results with Neat Image - I'd be interested in what others think. Also, if someone can give me an idea of what they use with this program, I'd be interested. Remember, the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence...

Hi Harriet

Sometimes I do a double pass through Noise Ninja. Easy to undo if too much detail lost. Cheers

I like the de-noised images, but I think the sepia has a certain quality especially with the cane chair giving it a realistically old look.

I tried some denoising, but since I like the sepia image better I stopped :roll:.

i prefer the colour one
the sepia one looks a bit flat
and i like the colours in the dog

how did you do the sepia ?

the way i do it is to make the image black and white
then add a brown layer over it and set it on overlay (i think, i am at work at the moment and cant check)
then alter the transparency
and also you can alter the hue saturation
this way you get heaps of variations
when you are happy flatten the image

i like pics but the sepia one needs a tear and a few creases to make it look old
