Trish sent me over the Ross picture because I asked if I could try pulling some detail out of Ross. I don't mean to start up the Canon/Nikon debate, but man are we spoiled with the Canon noise level in the shadows (or lack there of). While there is some detail there, you have to work at it to not pull a lot of noise out.

I first tried to just do a mask and add levels to Ross's face, but that didn't work very well. I wanted to work this one because it can be done in any PS version. After that failed, I dropped back to Shadow/Highlight filter at about 20%. Any more agressive and it looks worse. I also actually desaturated the color a little to compensate for some oversaturation from Shadow/Highlight (don't usually see this). This also exagerated the glare on his glasses, so I did a quick and dirty removal of the glare. This is something that takes a lot of time if you want it to be perfect. Finally, I cropped it to be level with the side of the train, resized it, and applied some USM. Other than the glare issue, this was very quick to do in PS CS2.

One more shot at it... I didn't like the look of the top of the train, so applied 2 successive masks and dropped the levels in each sucession... first on all by Ross and the red, and then just on the top of the train... the black part.
