I took this shot tonight good timing but it was a little out of focus. If anyone can save it. I just cropped it down a little for the post.

Thank You

Ok, totally amature, but I had a go at it. I am using my new Elements 4, but I think I washed it out a little too much.

Nice capture. I see why you want to save it. :cool:

I had a go with Image Analyzer from it is a free download, but the software isn't supported, so you are pretty much on your own as to figuring out how to use it.

I denoised a touch and then used the deconvolution to restore focus. Two iterations of the motion blur, and one of the gauss blur.

There's not a lot you can do with an out of focus picture. I added a lot of unsharp mask and that's pretty much it. It would likely work better with the original photo as sharpening will often highlight the edges of artifiacts introduced when saving down to a smaller JPG file.
