Title: Praying mantisNikon D50

A shot of outstanding beauty, beautiful colours, sharp details, very well composed.

BG noise: Could be that my large flatscreen is very merciless when it comes to noise, and CRTs are a bit softer and therefor more tolerant. I have done a quick workshop to reduce the noise at the BG I can see on my screen.

1. Noise removal selectively on BG
2. Some noise still remaining: Selective scratch and dust removal r=2 on BG, carefully avoiding to get in touch with any contours of the insect.

Cleary visible difference for BG on my screen - for technical reasons it would be interesting to hear from you if you see a difference, too.

Thank you, and best regards.
