    It was too dark, and my equipment was too limited. I snapped this at a recent Welcom Home and I know the picture quality is horrible, but I just can't bring myself to delete it. I've tried all the editing I know to do.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Usually it's not okay to edit my images, but if you think you can save this shot, then by all means, edit away.

    Thanks

    Do you have a RAW image, so that the white balance could be shifted???

    The shot is evocative, even though it is blurry.

    Had a go as well, but just in ACR. Whitebalanced taking into account it was shot under HPS floodlights?

    I dunno. I see why you want to save it. It's a terrific moment in time begging to be captured... but sometimes you have to say it was missed. Regardless, i gave it a shot... not sure if I didn't make it worse.
