OK, I was having a tough time deciding on what file I wanted to try and finally made a decision. :D My Mom's dog, Zak, was peeping in the dining room window wandering if he was ever going to be let inside or not! I just happened to be heading in there to set my camera down on the table and took the opportunity to get a snap before he got down! So we're looking at a shot through some dirty glass, screen, back lighting, indoor ambient and what not! May not be the best example to try to recover but it was kind of fun trying to pull something out of it!

SOOC:

Edit from DPP:

DPP settings:

I don't really care about blowing out all the background, just wanted to get something out of his face.

Notice the sharpness settings...........heh​, you would think the edit would be all crispy, way too crispy, so crispy it would hurt your eyes to look at it.......well it was! :D

So, while I was tinkering around with the controls, I noticed if I used some Lens correction, it softens the effect of all that sharpening! So I decided to go with it and leave it at that.:D

Here is an example of using the lens correction slider in DPP to soften or denoise some of the sharpening on this experiment:

comparison:

and closeup:

Whew, that was interesting! Now I'll have to go see what else I got hiding in the archives that can be fully recovered just using DPP.

Hey, Douglas, you definitely succeeded in bringing out that face! Nice "project", thanks for posting it and for showing us the details of your work! WhooHoo!

I'd say some folks will see this and be inspired!

Wow, Jan, that's pretty dramatic!

I presume you were aiming for that color of the water?

Heh! Well, if it was done on purpose, that's old "artistic license" at work!

Fantastic Jan, love what you did with the sky!

Douglas, you did a great job with your dog, I lost patience with DPP but you seem to have worked it out.

Thanks a lot! Yes, I was trying something different as the original was kinda plain boring.

The tower (top-right) looks pretty distorted in the post. Was that a perspective correction of some sort?

Yes, I attempted to make the photo look more wide angle.

Thanks Tony and you're welcome! I was really quite surprised with the final and must say this whole thread is quite inspiring! .....now where's that little rabbit I shot, er, um, took a picture of through the sliding glass door a couple years ago....!

Heh, heh, thanks man! I know what you mean about lost patience :D. I'll be culling shots and thinking......well this shot sucks, do I want to try and fix it or trash it. And then, If I want to try and fix it, do I want to DPP it, or ACR it! DPP usually wins at first, well, because I'm already there so why not. Usually what happens to me, and just yesturday, I'll be tweeking away at something in DPP trying to think of what needs to done and all. Eventually I'll go into the RGB tab, make some curves and what not, then I'll get stuck thinking.....is all I got......then FACE PALM.....oh yah, I can right click in the curves window and change over to luminosity and make more adjustments! I don't know why, but I always forget about that in DPP. :D
