I tried a couple of conversions on this using Silver Efex Pro but they look really lousy because the pixel dimensions of the original are so tiny that various effects (structure, particularly) interact with JPEG artifacts in unpleasnt ways.

Pixel dimensions are 559 x 382. If they're so small because it's an extreme crop, there's not much that can be done with it, IMO.

Yeah, this is weird because the file I uploaded is 675x436. Also, if you click the link that says, "original image" the picture you see appears to be smaller but sharper. Looks like the forum shrunk the actual file dimensions then up-sized to fit the size of the window.
