    IMO this pic is pretty good but the noise is killing it. What the heck can I do to remove some of the noise and not screw up the pic?

    What ISO, shutter speed, and aperture did you have in that photo? Your problem may be fixable in other ways...

    i know the ISO is 1600, i had the camera on auto ISO (which ill never do again) f/1.8 im pretty sure at 50mm i cant remember the shutter speed

    ive got photoshop CS2. ive tried to fix it in CS2 with filter, noise, reduce noise and i dont see a change.

    His Exif (doesn't give ISO, though):

    Camera Make: NIKON CORPORATION
    Camera Model: NIKON D50
    Image Date: 2009:01:25 03:36:26
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 34.0mm (35mm equivalent: 51mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.125 s (1/8)
    Aperture: f/4.5
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: program (Auto)

    The 1/8 second is probably causing the blurring that's going on, but it doesn't look overly noisy to me at the size it's presented at here. I've seen much, much worse.

    EXIF shows 34mm at f/4.5 with 1/8th shutter speed at 1600 iso no flash

    iso to high
    f stop to closed
    shutter too slow

    get a tripod or a faster lens and you will be able to tone down the iso settings

    thanks for your positive words. it was a flute pic that turned out to be one of the better ones minus the blur or noise. i tried to reproduce it and it just didnt happen so thats why im trying to "fix" it

    I ran it through Lightroom 2 to see if I could clean it up, but really isn't bad to begin with.

    It does.. he had the camera set to ISO 1600. :)

    Granted, thats not bad for 1600 on a D50, though. I am sure that the picture was reduced. Before trying to fix noise issues, it is important to work on the full size file, not a lower quality web variant.
