This is one of my favourite street photos. It's shot on a 1-inch sensor and processed in LR (I also had a FF camera with me but at that moment it had a ultrawide zoom on, and I had no chance to change it fast enough).

Which tools could improve the image? (sharpness, noise, etc)

Lots of possibilities with this great shot. I can see why you like it. Once you post the raw, a lot of folks will go after it.

I'd start with Lightroom, then probably use Topaz sharpen and deNoise Ai on it, and I'd probably adjust some lighting/shadows on the left side.

Then some part of me wants to fix the open wall on the right - maybe by crop or by fill. Or turn it into more of a frame like the left side.

Another part wants to remove the wall art over the chess players head. That will be in Photoshop.

Thank you.  Here's a link to the RAW, feel free to work on it!
