Challenge #14 in the Language Of Light series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
Sometimes you are just a tad late with a trigger. Or you forgot to switch back from Macro to Normal mode. Perhaps you shot something using wrong White Balance, or used an inadequate Program Mode. Maybe it was just badly framed... Let's see how you deal with botched photos to save what can be saved. Show us such pictures spliced together: the ORIGINAL and the REPAIRED. If you want, describe what you have done to salvage the shot. Please read carefully and observe all of the rules!

Submitted: Sunday, 1st April, 2012 17:52 (GMT)
Taken: Saturday, 24th September, 2011
Focal length: 50 mm
Shutter speed: 1/320 sec
Aperture: F4
ISO: 12800
Notes: Unfortunetely, my ISO was set to 12800 when I captured the photo. It was only a short moment when this guy was standing there in the entrance. After darkening the picture to hide the grainy structures I used everything photoshop offers me until I was satisfied. After that I am quite happy with the picture now, even more in direct comparison to the original one.
