jpeg shot with my A85 point and shoot. Taken in low incandescent light, hand held so it is very grainy. This is the best I could do to save it with my skills and PS. Unfortunately I chucked the original.
Salvage or improvements?
Better B&W?
Thanks!

I think you're probably going to be better off going with some B&W processing. Here's a sample of what might be done (still a little noisy!):

I quite like this. I cropped, converted to B&W, lightened up the cat a bit, and added a sepia filter.

Thank you both.
I tried a B&W as well but was distracted by the stripe that ran behind the cat. I haven't enough pp skills to take it out or fix the over exposed area's.
The sepia evens it out and the crop still suits the compostion.
I guess I should "practice" more and take pictures I don't have to fix!:wink:

Personally I think the first image you posted is the best of the options, it's a fantastic image and I'd leave it just as is.

I think this is so beautiful. It looks like it was taken a 100 years ago.
