Errors, Slips, And Blunders: ISO Soup

Challenge #29 in the The Revolver series. Hosted by Digital Alfredo, The Bacon Wagoneer.
Challenge has finished
If there's one general problem that's common to nearly all cameras, it's ISO noise - whether it be from using the no-flash auto setting, shooting in the dark, trying to catch fast action, or your flubbing the manual settings. Whatever the case was, your resulting photo is nearly or entirely unusable because of too much "grain".

I'm re-submitting this photo as it was (IMHO) wrongly DQ-ed. I have the RAW file if you want it, the NOISE is in the original photo: 5-ish stops under-exposed, but rescued with ARC with fairly radical setting, and then ONLY 'Levels' in PS. See: https://picasaweb.google.com/109850655807089990041/SomethingFromNothing for the full progression of the rescue of the photo. DQ it again, and I'll abide by your decision. :-) m
