I like those Topaz plugins. For this image I have used the original ISO 3200 image without noise reduction applied.

These old walls have so much texture, noise reduction would have made more harm than the noise itself. Instead I have emphasized the texture with “Interior Strong Detail”, a Topaz Detail preset, and thrown in some of Topaz Adjust‘s “Spicify”. It does not look entirely natural anymore, but I suppose it gives quite a good feeling for the place.

The Song of the Day is “Steps Steps Down” by Barney Bigard. I have it on disc 32 of the “Ultimate Jazz Archive”, my trusty treasure chest of 168 CDs full of Jazz history. Hear it on YouTube.

  2. Thanks Barry! I think it's a little over the top, but sometimes I like it that way. Great you do as well!
