Want a Challange?

This shot of my son graduating from college needs help. I've tried and it didn't get much better. The shot is a result of accidentally being on extended zoom and very high ISO. Thanks.

Personally, I think this needs to be a hi res image. No sense working on the lo res since there is not much there to work with.

Agreed. The full size image woud provide a lot more detail to work with.
For what it's worth, here is what I can get from Image Analyzer:

Got to agree with the others, even basic PP starts to produce halos.

Time spent on this was no more than a couple of minutes, wouldn't even try to go further with the limited resolution. ... Jack.

Much improved. Thanks. One of these should print pretty well for the album.

Thanks for the feedback ... It's good when we get some acknowledgement, it isn't always forthcoming. ... Jack.

Nice job rmuir. Thats about the way Id have done it. Just some blurry edge problems with the blue gown though.

Thank you Bynx, now I see the halo caused by blurring the background and trying to mask the subject out of the blur.

It made me think of a 'Ken Burns' type tutorial I saw, where you cut the subject out, do whatever to the background, then stretch it in behind them. Though now the edge seems too crisp even after a border selection and blur, but a little better I think.
