    I was unable to clean this one up,

    Thanks goes to LP for noise reduction, I still have a little left to do but this is a lot better than it was.

    Yeah, I know, I spent the last two days trying to fix the issues I had with the other ones, I don't know what happened but I do plan on taking another stab at processing this one at the first oppertunity.

    Its a good shot and I wouldn't let the noise get you down. Noise isn't as bad as people make it out to be, IMO. Some really great photos of yesteryear were so grainy, it looked like they developed it with sand, but they were still good. In today's digital age, total lack of grain is expected (because its usually possible in most circumstances), but it doesn't take away from great composition. If that were the case, everyone nowadays would think Ansel Adams sucks.

    BTW, Blue Jays are MEAN. They will steal smaller birds' nests, and attack them and all sorts of stuff. Don't let their softness fool you.

    Oh I am well aware of their aggressive nature, that is half of why I like them so much. :D

    Also with the previous image I had literally a combination of grain and noise that was truely hidious, Even I was dissatisfied with the original PP turnout, but I was so busy trying to save the other shots I could not get back to fix this one, even then when I did get back to it I could not do it and still had considerable speckles.
