    The despeckle filter is useless for dealing with noise (it works okay removing dust and other stuff--speckles--from scans. When I did some research, it looked like Noise Ninja and Neat Image were rated about equally. I went with Neat Image simply 'cause I got a good price. I use it with Photoshop CS3 on OS X. It works great but like all noise reduction programs it can be easily over done.

    I second the suggestion of NeatImage. I have both NeatImage and NoiseNinja and to be honest, I prefer NeatImage alot more than NN. I think they both have free trials so give them a test and see which you prefer.

    As for this shot, I dont see much noise but it is underexposed and that will always render more noise.

    Thanks for the suggestions on NeatImage and NoiseNinja everyone. For some reason, I thought both were PC only plugins, so I'll grab demos of each and give them a try.

    As for the underexposure, I had to dial that in to speed up the shutter. ISO 800 is about max for my D60. 1600 is just too noisy for small crops. I didn't think the underexposure was too bad, however I did the PP on my G4 without the external monitor hooked up, so I wasn't real sure what I was getting. It looked good on my wife's PC laptop though, so I thought I'd about nailed it. Back to the drawing board
